First take a volt meter and check your battery voltage with your engine off. If far below 12 volts, that may be the issue. If battery is fully charged, have someone hold the key to the ON position like they're starting the truck. As they hold the key, rap the starter with a hammer. If the truck suddenly turns over, you need a new starter. You may also need to check your clutch switch if standard, or your neutral safety switch if an automatic. If still no dice, I would then take the volt meter and begin to trace wires and find where the power stops. Could be a bad relay or an ignition issue. Post back with findings.......
