2001 EX starter spin, not engaging

Need some help here all, I tried to start my truck an it started as a slow crank then sped up and acted like it was going to turn over then all at once dead. Took the starter off and it was blown, had it tested at local shop just to verify. Picked up a new Mitsubishi starter, put it on it only spins, took it off and jumped it with cables and took it to local shop to have it tested. I've check the cables from battery to fender solenoid to starter, checked fuses, and batteries are good.

So question is, what am I missing?

Thank you very much for any help.

so the starter spins freely without engaging? if the starter gear isn't popping out of the starter, you're problem is with the new starter

That is true if its possible to test it at the store, have it pass, but not work on the truck.
