Could be the fuel pump also something else that can cause the same problem is if the fuel cutoff switch breaks then it won't turn over. I had mine break before. I think it is on the passenger side under the glove box area somewhere.

don't know, I guess see if you can find it and see if it looks broken. If you have had a passenger in your truck they can actually kick it and break it, that is how mine broke

Under the passenger side kick panel, the fuel cutoff switch is somewhere up there. Just push the button on it to reset it.

Can you hear the pump when you turn the key into the run position?
Fuse, relay? Fuel filter? Test your fuel pressure. Also it wouldn't hurt to unplug that fuel switch and then plug it in again. Just for the shear hell of it.
