It is possible the converter is plugged. A simple and quick test for this is to remove the O2 sensor from the exhaust manifold and drive the truck. If it runs over 2k then oyu know the converter is plugged and the exhaust needs a place to go.

If this doesn't solve it, then I would look at the ignition timing as a possible cause, sometimes the distributor fails to advance and that can cause the issue. The other issue could be the mass air flow sensor that is bolted to the throttle body. They fail on these as well. Usually when they do there is a fuel cutoff at about 2700 RPMs.

Please let me know if there is anything else I can do to help.
