These trucks are notorious for developing corrosion inside the spark plug wires terminals at the coil packs . This can cause the coil packs to fail due to excessive resistance . remove and check all ignition cables for excessive corrosion build up . And you might want to consider ignition coil replacement as well . Additionally if the engine has been cranked excessively with no start . It is a good guess the spark plugs have been soaked and fouled with fuel residue . Remove and replace or clean and replace .
