If it starts on starting fluid, you have spark. Since there is fuel pressure at the release valve, the problem is beyond that. Sounds like injectors to me.

Maybe its a security issue. Doesn't that disable the injectors? Or does it kill spark?

If the truck doesnt recognize the key it will not start it has a passive antitheft system from the factory

I just couldnt remember if the system will cut fuel or fire to the engine to make it not start when the secutiry system is active. But i think it does disable the fuel injectors in that case
