Intermittent starting

Hi. I've been having issues starting my truck. Sometimes it will start sometimes not. Most often not. If it doesn't start with the key, I have to jump the solenoid on the fender wall.

About 6 months ago I replaced the starter. That burnt out from over cranking it in the cold. I replaced it with a NAPA starter. Everything was ok until about three months ago. So two months ago I replaced the solenoid on the fender wall with an new Ford one. That didn't fix it. Then just recently I replaced one of the relays in the interior fuse panel. That didn't fix it either. Is there something else I am missing? I prefer to take care of this myself rather than lose the truck for a few days. Thanks
