Check the water level in the batteries, I know it's probably not that simple, but I had something similar happen to me and we checked everything, looked everywhere and finally added a little water to the batts. and she started right up.

Take the cover off on the driver side and there should be 2 removable caps on top. Just pop them off and fill the 3 holes w/ distilled water. The pass. side doesn't have a batt. cover, so the 2 caps should be right there. I fill them until they're around 1/4" from the top.

So what your saying is, the truck cranks and turns over but does not fire.

Is the above statement correct. What I suggest you do is scan for codes. Then go from there.
