I'd check the firing order. You may have some valvetrain problems, i.e. bent pushrod or bad valve.

How would i know if my timing chain is bad my truck just died while driving down the street and never started back can you please help me with this matter

need to figure out if it is getting gas and spark, once you figure that out then you can fix the problem. if you have a can of WD-40 spray it into the intake and if it fires then its a fuel problem, if not then its an ignition problem. Hope this helps Tim

Correct piston position for firing order...piston 1 is up. 3 and 5 is down. what position is 2,4, and 6.

It doesn't matter where the other pistons are as long as #1 is all the way up or Top Dead Center. What matters is what the valves are doing when #1 is at TDC. Watch the valves carefully as you turn the engine over and make sure that the intake opens first. At TDC both valves should be closed and as you go past TDC the exhaust valve will start to open. Remember that this only happens in this order every other time #1 hits TDC.
When you have this order correct the #1 piston should fire. Hope this helps.

Back fires out of intake

sounds like the timing belt, unless you recently changed you spark plugs and put the boots/wires on the wrong plug. May seem silly but I've seen it done before.
