Runs then dies

The truck starts just fine and runs flawlessly for about 30-45minutes and then it just dies. Its not overheating. The temp reads below operating temp by the time it shuts off. No dummy lights come in the process either.

Coolant temp sensor issue

very possible as the coolant temp sensor reports the engine temperature to the ECM so that the correct air/fuel mixture can be delivered
it it is faulty the ECM will not know if the engine is subzero temp or overheating so reports from the ambient temp and baro sensor will cause a lock up situation in the program of the ECM
now that you have run the car for a few miles , have the fault codes read again
