    Well I know you said its getting fuel but is it getting enough. If the fuel pressure is too low then the truck wont get enough fuel to keep running. I personally don't know the exact fuel pressure, but it should be about 60 psi while running/ starting.

    could it just be that i need a new fuel filter cause that fuel pump was put into the truck in july and it was a new ac delco one not a rebuilt

    Very possible and can't hurt! a dirty fuel filter and rob fuel pressure easily and cause hard start and trouble running.
