{ 94 5.0l. V8} keeps dying after gassing it in gear !!!!!

(1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500)
in Fresno, CA on August 31, 2010
My truck has always (since i bought it used) seemed like its gonna stall when i get to stop signs or red lights. never did, just cut off the radio. NOW, it wont drive. I can gas it just fine while its parked and it idles beautifully otherwise. Starts quick every time and is without any power loss.... it will even crawl ( move in idle) when in gear but once i give it gas it stalls almost immediately....

Something could b clogged like investors or low fuel pressure. Also check fuel filters and make sure no water has got into the gas. If everything checks out it may also b something internal like the heads lost power
