First, try a 1-3 second blast of starting fluid into the air intake, then try to start your truck. If it starts up from the starting fluid, you know you have a fuel delivery problem. There may be a fuel pressure regulator that is causing problems. If the starting fluid produces no change in what's happening...its a good bet that you have an ignition/electrical issue.

I agree with Mark The fuel pump is in the tank the filter sock could have collapsed (thankyou ethanol) You may show some fuel but not enough to pass the regulator under pressure.
