Default 05 4.0l 4x4 Will Not Start

I have a 4.0l 4x4 and it ran fine yesterday.
Today I go out to start it and it cranks fine but it won't fire.
Everything seems to be ok as far as the lights on the dash goes.
I did try to reset the fuel switch under the dash. But still nothing.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks!!

Do you hear the fuel pump when you turn your key on? May not be getting any fuel...

Sounds like a Fuel issue.

Have some one listen next to your gas tank while you turn the key to the on position. They should hear the fuel pump turn on. If they don't you probably need to replace it.

I'm having the full pump replaced under warranty tomorrow.
I'll let you guys know how it goes.
Thanks for the help.

Actually it turned out to be a bad connection from the fuel cut off switch to the fuel pump.
In the end the dealer replaced the fuel pump the first time because it started for them when they went to work on it and they figured it was probably going bad.
But then it did the same again the next week and when they went to work on it it wouldn't start for them. That's when they tracked it to the bad connection.
I really hope this is it. It's terrible not being able to depend on the truck.
