There is a small wire going to the starter that is only supposed to be HOT in START position, Pull the battery cable, Then pull that small wire off the starter, (leave the big wire on the starter) then see if the starter still cranks when you put the battery cable back on the battery, if it does, then it will need a new starter motor itself, if pulling the small wire makes it stop, then the problem is somewhere in the truck wiring harness or ignition switch.
