Engine Won't Crank

My truck was working just fine and now this morning it will not turn over.The batteries are good but the starter won't engage.It's almost like the security feature that disables the key until you hit lock/unlock on the command start.May just be a dead starter but it wasn't making any different sounds or acting up at all.Has anyone had this happen?Just looking for any hints on possible problem.

well what year is your truck??? and do you have an aftermarket alarm system on it? easy way to tell if it is a starter, check for your main battery power at the starter if it checks good there, have someone get inside while you lay underneath and see if your getting 12v to your solenoid. If you are then you need a starter if not you have another concern that needs to be addressed.

Will it crank over with the jumper in the engine compartment?
