when you crank, does the oil pressure gauge come up?
any white smoke out the tailpipe when cranking?
scanning for codes would be a good first step

No smoke comes out and no gauges come on. Everything seems normal just not starting when it turns over. Where could I get it scanned at? Would pep boys be able to or does it need to be a dealer?

when you say "no gauges come on", when you cycle the key on, do the gauges sweep? glow plug light cycle, and all instrument cluster bulbs illuminate briefly?

Any way to measure ICP and IPR?

Reach under the FICM and make sure they got those plugged in and didn't break a clip when they removed them.

The normal lights come on such as glow plugs, etc.. Truck has full power turns over fine just won't start. I disconnected hose and sprayed starter fluid into intake manifold and with putting hose only half way back on the truck started but started gargling so I shut it off. I figured it was because hose was not connected but I can't get it back on manifold all the way... Any suggestions?

sometimes i use a heat gun on that pipe at the connection. softens it up a little. a handheld propane torch works as well, but be careful! justwant it heated slightly.
also, you really shouldn't be using starter fluid on a 6.0l. it's not the same as an old 7.3.
it's going to run for a second. all that tells you is that your problem is a lack of fuel to the cylinders. there are a multitude of possibilities.
if you crank and crank and the oil pressure gauge doesn't move, it's either a large leak, like a blown off stc fitting, ipr valve stuck/damaged, lpo pump, hpo pump.
at this point, you will at least need it scanned for codes. it doesn't need to go to the dealer, but the scan toolneeds to be capable of reading manufacturer specific codes. after scnning for codes, they can move onto viewing live data like icp, ipr, ficm v
