Engine died in traffic 2 days after having starter problems and getting the starter replaced. Tried to start the engine again but the engine won't turn-over. Gas tank is half full. Battery is fully charged and newer. Could it be fuel pump, water pump or distribution cap?

It is a signature of a dead or dieing battery. get the battery checked out at walmart or buy a few goodies and check it your self, first the water, make sure it is full, to the fill mark, with distilled water, no minerals, then check the voltage, 13 V Minimum at all times. Then get one of those floaty ball battery testers, one dead cell or even one week cell, battery is shot. Then check the terminals, gotta be squeaky clean. inside, won't start without it. I am not saying you didn't get a bad starter, I got 3 once too for one of my rodeos, they tried to blame the car, I said get up the starter, the 3rd one finally worked. Hope this helps.
Make sure the all wires on the steering colum is pluged in tight. You probably don't want to here this but don't settle for anything less than a GM fuel pump. I had to replace one five times in one truck in 6months. If not the fuel pump check fuel regulator. Now on another note if this is the same truck losing power keep in mind the ECM is what pulsates the injectors for fuel to the engine. It could be back to the ground problem
Check tightness of the clamps on battery & make sure the earth cable is tight from battery to engine, also check tightness of nut holding the cable 2 starter motor if all ok there its most probably the solenoid on top of starter motor replace this with new all will b ok.
might be in the alternator with the heater and ac on it is drawing alot of extra jucie from the battery in which is putting a strain on the alternator in which is causing the engine to not get enough power to the coil to fire properly
