Sounds like a leaking injector or bad pump. Spray starter in the intake while trying to start the truck if it starts and run as you spray it in then these are the things you will need to look at..

If it does not fire off with starting fluid, then check for spark.

    I've replaced the battery and starter. I'll turn the key over and I can hear the fuel pump kick on. But when I go to start it nothing happens. It just acts dead.

    When you put the key in the ignition switch and turn it, the dashboard comes on but the motor won't turn over. When you turn on the interior light, it starts normally.
