How is the starter? May need to load test the starter. Is this engine running?

New starter and the engine does run but haven't had it running in my truck

I wonder if the Ignition Starter Switch is giving you grief, this is what it looks like...... https://www.carid.com/2004-dodge-dakota-ignition-parts/standard-ignition-lock-switch-44863242.html

How long was the engine sitting, wonder if you should pull all the plugs and squirt some oil into the cylinders and turn it over to lube up the rings?
