Try exchanging the MAP sensor from the other "good running" car. What I think you are experiencing is a flat MAP which fails to read more than the minimum. A MAP sensor out on these cars will make it run absolutely terrible and die as you have indicated.

By unplugging the TPS sensor you are effectively putting the car in "limp" mode. In this mode it ignores a potentially bad TPS, O2, and MAP sensors and or circuits.

I would start with the fuel pump fuse. If that is good, then have someone sit behind your car and you turn the key to the accessory position. When you do that your friend should here a humming sound comming from the gas tank. That means that the pump is working and pressurizing the fuel lines to your injectors to start the car. If the pump is working check your fuel filter, it seems like that maybe your problem. Over time dirt and debris get mixed with your fuel from the gas tank and get trapped in the fuel filter and slowly stops flow for the fuel to get through the filter. Hope this helps.

I recommend you hook up a scanner and view the data coming off the tps, map, etc. while driving. I'm thinking the tps may be going out and does not drop properly when you take your foot off the pedal. The pcm may not be engaging the iac until the truck dies and is restarted. You need live data to solve this problem.
