Runs fine then dies

I took my truck for a spin today and it died on me 5 times. I would be at a red light not in gear and it would just die. It would take forever to get started again but would fire up and run fine. What should I be looking for? Cam position sensor?

It's as good a place as any to start if you just want to throw parts at it.

Could be fuel pump.

Could be a few other things.

I haven't had time to work on the truck at all but it will still die on me when I go to shift gears or stop at a light sometimes. It doesn't do it all of the time but just when its the most inconvient time possible. If I am coasting I throw it into 6th gear and pop the clutch out and it will fire right back up no problem. But if it dies while I'm stopped it will take forever to crank up again. It will not smoke while cranking or anything. It died on the way to church the other day and I just coasted in the parking lot and went inside to talk with Jesus and when I came back out it fired right up. Only to die a few blocks away.

I looked it over and there is a couple wires that is not hooked up. Anyone know what these go to or have a thought on my troubles?
