Transmission or altenator?

I would say change the alternator out. Start with the simplest and cheapest factor first. Without the alternator keeping the engine running its hard to put it any gear.

Sounds like an electrical problem to me since you lose power as well when it dies. I would check to make sure I have a good clean ground to the battery to the block.

05' Silverado Keeps dying out

Sounds like you have a dirty throttle body. This truck has whats called "drive by wire". There are no throttle cables. If you remove the air intake tube you can carefully clean with some carb cleaner and a rag. Reinstall the tube and let it idle for a few minutes so the computer can relearn the base idle. If this does not work you may have a defective throttle body.
