Bleed the air out. You might be able to do it by turn key on and bleed from the nipple on the injector rail that is used to test fuel pressure, looks a lot like a tire valve, should squirt gas and air out when you push the pin

a good reason is the filter is restricting the pressure to allow self priming..add to that a weak pump,sock and picking up junk from running it low....

turn the ignition to the on position and listen to a slight buzzing noise, if you dont hear it it means your fuel pump has burned out. no fuel pump equals no running truck
