Your truck is flooding. If you wait a few hours for the fuel to evaporate the truck may start. That said you have a problem with too much fuel. It is possibly leaking fuel injector(s).

I did replace the spark plugs and it still won't start. Thanks for your answer "full of regrets". Can it also be the intake manifold gasket? I am assuming the injectors come first though so what should I look for to see if it's the injectors?

Are you getting spark? I doubt it is the intake manifold gasket. If it were bad you would have a vacuum leak, not too much fuel.

It's almost wanting to crank over but it seems like a fuel issue

Did you fix your truck.???
