Grandammit!!! Bad oxygen sensor could cause the stalling or it needs new plugs and wires...so since it is 8 years old, give it new plugs and wires...then if the problem persists with NO CHECK ENGINE LIGHT....then it is a mechanical problem with the engine. If your check engine light IS on...then take it to any shop with OBD2 diagnostics so the codes can be analized and the proper repair performed.

1. Park the truck on a level surface and set the parking brake. Place your foot on the brake then put the key in the ignition. Turn the key to the "On" position but do not start the truck.
2. Shift the automatic shift lever to the "1" position and tilt the steering column to its lowest position using the tilt adjustment on the bottom left side of the steering column.
3. Hold the bezel/trim around the instrument cluster and pull it towards you to release the clips holding it to the dashboard. Work your way around the bezel, pulling it as you go, until it's only connected to the dash by wiring. Unplug those wiring harnesses from the back by hand then put the gear shifter back into park. Bring the bezel to a table or counter that you can work on.
4. Turn the bezel onto its face. Locate the headlight switch which should be on the lower right corner of the bezel. There are delicate plastic fingers that hold the switch to the dashboard. Carefully pry these away from the switch with the flat head screwdriver in one hand while pulling the switch away from the bezel with the other until it's free.
5. Push the replacement switch into the bezel until it clicks into place. Then bring the bezel back to the SUV. Put your foot on the brake and shift the shifter into the "1" position again. Plug in the connections on the bezel then push the bezel into place on the dashboard until it clicks. Put the shifter back in park, tilt the column to its desired location and turn the ignition off.
When replacing the connector cut one wire at a time and transfer it to the same position on the new connector, solder and shrink tube each wire, take your time. Remember one wire at a time.
