Are you sure you have a 2002? The 4.7 was not an available engine in the 2002 and also the 4.7 does not have plug wires it uses COP (coil on plug) ignition system

Must be the large v6.

Actually I am sorry the 4.7 was available in your year I was looking at the 2500 for some reason. A very common problem for a surge and stall on your vehicle is a failing TPS (throttle position sensor). The TPS starts to send erratic signals to the PCM and it cause it to surge and over fuel which will cause a stall out. You will need to start with replacing the TPS on your vehicle
