three things needed to start, fuel, spark, compression. Fuel Pump (P0230 to P0233) PCM (P0600 to P0606) Crank Sensor (P0355 to P0399) Fuel Pressure (P0190 to P0194) Chances are the Check Engine Light is not on, but you may find any of the following codes: P0230 to P0233 Fuel Pump codes P0600 to P0606 PCM related codes P0335 to P0339 Crank Sensor codes P0190 to P0194 Fuel Pressure Sensor codes

how many miles are on the truck? when was the last time plugs / wires were swapped out? try removing the air filter cover or see how clogged your filter is... make sure you have gas (seems obvious). Other than this, its really hard to suggest parts unless i knew more about whats been replaced / what the truck has been through (even a wet air filter could temporarily stop the truck from starting)...

also could be as simple as cleaning the battery posts and terminals. it doesn't take much corrosion to block the charge.

It could be your injectors bleeding off. I have a 2002 with the 4.7 and it had to turn over several times before it would start and was worse when hot or sat for a while. Mechanic replaced 2 and now starts easy.
