Sounds like your starter solenoid. When the starter or starter solenoid goes, you can have all the power in the world attached to it, and it won't send power to the starter to crank the engine. I would take the starter off and replace it.

i think its your solenoid too. possibly flat spot in starter? heres a fairly esay wayto see if its your solenoid .find an old screwdriver and lay it over the two big posts on your solenoid if your truck turns over then just replace the solenoid it is bad

before you buy that starter try one more thing.bypass the regulator mounted on the fender. You can do this with a pair of jumper cables. hook one lead to the positive side of the battery and then touch the other end of the same lead to the side of the regulator that supplies the starter if it cranks your starter is ok and it's you regulator that is the bad component. Be sure the vehicle is in neutral.

The problem is in the steering column. Remove the ignition starter switch. There is a little stem that sticks out on top.push this all the way forward with ignition on and trick should crank and start.

the next time you disconnect the battery you need to plug a 9 volt system into the cig lighter in order to keep memory in the ecm
