Default truck won't start!

Well the yesterday when i first tried to start the truck, it just cranked but not started. it took about 5 tries to get it to crank. now today on the first time i try to start it, it won't start. I've tried and and tried and it wont start. I've already tried the inertia switch and fuel pump relay and fuse....what should i check next. I just bought this truck 2 weeks ago and this is the second problem I've had!

You should be able to hear the fuel pump buzz a lil.

SO it cranked and ran or just cranked?

well after cleaning the entire intake out b/c of mud getting in it, we got it to run by taping on the gas tank. so looks like a fuel pump. fuel filter needs to be changed anyways so i'll try that first. it hasn't fully quit on me yet though, I just drove it half an hour with no problems and it starts up every time now. we will see how it is in the morning.
