Truck Died Need HELP!!!

Ok, here it goes to start with I have installed a switch in the dash to run the glow plug relay because the computer won't turn them on. Today after work about 5 degrees outside I get in and hit the glowplug switch for about 20 seconds or so and start the truck, it starts up fine all seems to be ok. So I cycle the glowplug switch a couple times to help it keep running smooth about the third time of hittng the switch when I let of the switch at that very second the motor kills and won't restart. So to make a long story short I get a buddy to pull it to my house and we put it in the garage. I normally can hear the fuel pump on the frame rail run when I turn the key on but I can't hear that so I checked the fuses and they are fine so I checked power at the pump and there wasn't any so I am not sure where to go from here any ideas??

Well I checked for power at the fuel pump again and there isn't any, I checked all the fuses and they all ohm out good but the fuse block under the hood mini fuse 1 and 3 have no power on them even when the key is on. Is this normal also could there be a relay that is bad. I can't find my owners manual so I don't know which ones to check, can any tell me which number fuses and relays are for the fuel system. Thanks

I found my Chiltons manual finally and I was reading in there and it refers to a fuel pressure regulator on the filter housing. Is it possible that this sensor has gone bad and simply shut the fuel pump off??

I was talking to my local dealer when it first happened and the parts dept told me that there is 2 fuel pumps on the 01's one in the tank and one on the frame rail. Is there any truth to that cause I can't find any reference to it in the Chiltons manual.
