You could have a dirty Fuel Filter, try changing that first since it's the easiest and cheapest to do. You'll find the filter i believe on the inside if the frame under the drivers area. The only other thing i can think of is a fuel Pump going bad and not producing enough fuel pressure.
Best thing, start with the fuel filter and get the truck scanned for any DTC codes.
Good luck and hope this helps.

Check the fuel filter and then the fuel pump. A shaking engine could be from having water in the gas. Put in some "Heat" fuel additive it will dry out any water in the gas. Check the battery also and make sure the charging system isn't running the battery down....

    Prior to this, did you have issues with the Throttle Body? I had to get mine cleaned and my truck ran great. Then I found out other people had similar issues and then major problems started shortly after. All of a sudden your truck will start to lose power and shut off while driving.

Check your air horn (big rubber boot) to the throttle body. It may have a crack on the underside and when you put it in drive and the engine torques to that side the crack opens and causes it to die.

Is your check engine light on? If not Seem to me that is a fuel related problem. How many miles on the car . Has the fuel filter been change? The fuel pump may be losing pressure. That will make it do that.
