Engine dies while idling

The saga continues...

So early as I was pulling away from a light the truck just pretty much died. Rev'd up I shifted and then shudder shake and off. It restarted but now (more than before) if it idles for anything more than a minute it just kinda dies... doesn't try to catch itself and rev back up... Ideas/Thoughts/ Comments?

Does the GM stepper motor that some people have used fit the 3.9 or only the 4.0?

Could be MAF. I have had trouble with mine. Same symptoms.
Replaced stepper - nada
Replaced ecu - nada
Replaced maf and everything was good for 6 months. Now early morning I have that issue until truck is warm. I am convinced it's caused by whatever they do to gas in winter.
