If you're just getting a click, it's either a dead or bad battery, or a bad starter. Charge battery and test it with a volt meter and see if it's around 12 volts. Make sure connections and grounds are clean and tight. If battery is good, have your wife hold the key to the ON position like she is starting the truck. As she holds the key, rap on the starter with a hammer. If it suddenly turns over, that means your starter is failing and needs replacement. Post back with results.....
