Vinny, you must have missed something. If it's getting gas and spark, it would start. If it had both of these, and timing was off, you would still get a backfire from exhaust or intake. Make sure the spark is consistent, not just one time. You can also buy a "noid" light. It's a small light you plug into one of the injector connectors, to check if you have a steady injector pulse. just because there is fuel pressure, if that's what you mean "getting gas", doesn't mean the injectors are pulsing.

I even put starting flhid and still no fire

If you sprayed either/starting fluid in, and didn't even get a pop, nor set yourself on fire, then you have no spark/ignition. And do yourself a favor, don't spray that starting fluid in any more, if you really like you eyebrows. This stuff should never be on the shelf, in the parts store today. It used to get a carburetor car started in the winter, long ago, and still might be OK for some diesel engines, but should not be in the hands of fuel injected car owners. Too many risks with this stuff, in an enclosed area (Garage), and way more flammable than gasoline. But, on a lighter note, If it doesn't fire with starting fluid, you have no spark/ignition, thank god for you. You still have eyebrows now. :-) Can I help with the "no spark" issue, no. I'm not too familiar with the ignition system on a 2006 Ram, but we got it narrowed down a bit, huh? Hope this helps you?
