Try turing the key from off to run - not start - wait a few seconds then turn key to off and then try to start the truck. You might have a fuel supply / pressure issue. Cycling the key runs the pump to prime the system if it has completely bleed back to the tank it would take a few seconds to prime the lines and build pressure to start. That is a free way to test and see what you might have wrong and give you somewhere to start looking.
