Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question.

The one code P0463 is for the Fuel Level Sensor. There are two different type of fuel level senders for this truck. So I would recommend you get the level sensor from the dealer so you get the right one.

The P0183 is for a fuel tank temp sensor which comes with the fuel level sensor. That is why you want to get it from the dealer so you get the right one.

Did you say the truck is running ruff?

it acts like it has a bad spark plug wire but I have changed all of them including.plugs cap rotor. The original codes were the same, however I bought all the internal fuel tank parts online and was not aware there were more.

Yeah... Seen it before. You need to get the fuel sender from the dealer so the codes would clear.

As for the running issue, what brand spark plugs did you install?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
This has been an ongoing project since March. I don't recall
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Ngk if memory served

You need to have NGK Platinum Spark plugs in your truck. Any other brand spark plugs can cause the engine to run ruff. These engines are very sensitive to the brand spark plugs. So you want to be sure which plug you exactly have. Other wise, you could be looking at a Distributor issue.
