Start with rechecking your connections at the battery. Make sure they are clean and tight. Next check the connections at the starter, make sure they are clean and tight. Check the wires between the battery and starter for any nicks, cuts, corrosion, frayed, pinched or broke wires.

We didn't tighten batt cables down with a wrench, just finger tight. Going now to check everything. Thanks will update.

Oh no. That will your problem. They have to be tight. Glad I could help.

Well tightened everything down and still no go, tried to jump the solenoid and got very little spark. Turns out it was my starter, it was burnt. Luckily for me I have an amazing mechanic and he had it tower and replaced inside an hour. Starts like it did when I drove it off the lot. Happy to have my truck back and be rolling again :-) Thanks for the feed back. Happy Valentines Day.
