My gas pedal will be hard to push and my steering wheel feels stiff to turn some times and then this happens the truck feels very sluggish. Then other days it drives very peppy with a soft feel to the gas pedal and and easy turning steering wheel

Is there any codes, does the check engine light come on?

The fly by wire is electronic. Make sure the alternator is charging correctly. It should have about 14-14.5 volts at the battery.
