Hundred dollars says it is a 5.0 engine. Time to pull the pan and hope the oil pump screen is plugged. Not a fun job, especially if it is four wheel drive. Those engines had a weak oiling system to the crank and by your description it sounds like bearing wear. A screen will usually lose pressure while cruising, not at idle. If the screen is clean, put a pump and screen in it and get yourself some 20w-50 oil and plan on replacing the engine.

Hows the oil level on the dipstick?
The light will come on at hard stops if it's a little low on oil
Some vehicles a quart low will do it
If the specs say 5 quarts, make sure it gets 5 quarts, even if the dipstick reads full after 4 quarts are put in
