What are the symptoms? Does it crank?

Yes it cranks but only tried twice with about 3 minutes in between because I did not want to run battery down. Car is full of gas and always starts immediately just by turning the key.

Have the battery load tested and make sure that the connections are clean, also when you get it running check if the alternator is giving you over 14 volts. If there was moist in the starter before it frose then you could have ice in the starter, then you need to get the truck in to a warm place to melt it and let it dry.
