Take your battery out and put it on a charger. See if it will even take a charge. If it charges up fully, put it back in the truck and see if she fires right up. If it starts right up with a fully charged battery, I would suspect that it's not the fuel pump, but the battery itself. If a battery goes totally dead in the vehicle, your vehicle will die out. I just went through that whole deal with my kids car a while back. Car would start if you jumped it. But as soon as you shut it off, it wouldn't start back up again to save your life. New battery, problem solved!

has new battery in it..put it in wial I was on the side the road


Ok, so she cranks over and over but no fire? First see if you have a good spark. If no spark, I would suspect a coil issue. If spark is good, the next thing would be fuel pump. Put a screw driver to the bottom of the fuel tank and put your ear on the end of the screw driver. Have someone turn the key, Do you hear the fuel pump humming? If not, your pump is gone.
