Scan for codes. Report back.
Look into the scan tools that can read live engine data (scangaugeII is one, there are phone apps also: Forscan, Torque). All 6.0L owners should have one.

In the meantime ............

check oil level
post what oil you are using and how many miles are on that oil
make sure your batteries are fully charged and your connections are good, tight, and clean.
personally I would have the batteries individually load tested also
