That sounds like a bad wiring connection, or something wrong in the charging system, that makes a lot to look at but it sounds electrical to me.

the truck now died going down the road and i have no power to anything


I don't think your going anywhere unless you get it started. It may be in the steering column, wiring, or something wrong with the ignition switch.
