After truck starts and runs the fuel rail becomes VERY hot, hotter than the exhaust. After about 15 min or so truck stops running, or runs very poorly, until it cools off again. ?

What is litre size of engine, early or late production? How long since a tune-up? Use a gage and check fuel pressure.

I don't know why the fuel rail is getting that hot? There could be safety issues, safety is your responsibility.

I'd let everything cool off before testing. Can you check for applicable trouble codes. At the least, you need an obd 2 code reader to check trouble codes. Your local autostore should have one.
