Try cranking the truck with your foot on the accelerator pedal. Just crack the throttle open a little and try to start. If the truck starts then dies when you take your foot off the accelerator, you have a bad, what is called an IAC valve. It is what controls the Idle Air bypassing the throttle.

Just a couple of guesses. Bad (petulant) computer? Maybe a circuit inside that isn't right?
It doesn't sound like a grounding issue if it starts right back up, but you might check the computer ground. Quite often, that ground is on top of the engine, coming out of the wiring harness.
Hope you find it. Puzzling. Might help if you kept a scanner hooked up while driving. Then you might get some freeze frame information.
