The only thing I can think of is that if the truck has an fuel cutoff inertia switch, not sure where it is. If it is the case, make sure to reset it.

There is no Inertia switch that I am aware of... I would look at the wiring going onto the fuel tank, it is possible that the pump unplugged inside the tank

From the looks of the pic, you could have a kinked fuel line.
