Hello my name is Scott

Does the dash "die out" or does the truck stall?

Check the connection on the drivers side battery positive cable, there should be a bolted on red wire that feeds the cluster and igntion switch, see if this connection is clean and tight. Let me know what you find, thanks Scott
