WTS Light? - do you get it when you first roll-on the key?
Tach Movement? - does the tach needle move up slightly when cranking?
Fuel - pump runs? Fuel refilling filter housing? Tank below 1/4?
Is it cranking fast enough? - it won't even TRY to start if cranking really slowly.
Is your truck "chipped"? If so, remove it as a Test.
Has the "Check Engine" been coming on at all? - codes would be the fastest way to direct you. Unfortunately, it takes a special scanner to retrieve them...
Did you check the plug and sheet metal nut going to the IPR? Try "rapping" on the IPR with a screwdriver handle, sometimes if stuck, you can "free it up".
