My truck isn't starting and none of the lights work either. The battery is hot but sometimes the lights and radio cone on but if I hit the brake or clutch it kills everything.

Sound,s like you may have a bad igintion switch.

And all so check the wire,s on battery make sure there tight then check the starter may be locked up,

And also if I turn the ignition real slow and hit it at a certain point the radio and interior light comes on but nothing else then the radio starts flashing and cutting on and off

Its been starting up perfect up till now but it does have fits to where it won't start and does same thing but if I flip the ignition back and forth it eventually hits and starts but starter and everything sounds and works fine

I think you need to check the switch.
