Hello my name is ***** ***** i will do my best to help you , i strive for EXCELLENT service and nothing more. Do you have starting fluid ? Did you try to run off of starting fluid ? We need to determine if the engine is not getting fuel or spark. And starting fluid is the easiest way to determine. I realize you have done a lot of work. I am excellent at diagnosing issues like this. So please if I ask a questions that make not make sense to you at the time please trust that it is information that will lead us to a positive result. And all information you can give about the truck or engine is useful info. No matter how insignificant it may seem at the time anything odd you notice will assist us in getting you back on the road.

Ok so pull the fuel pump fuse and crank it for a good few seconds to clear out the cylinders and fuel rail. Then see if it starts off of fluid. If it does we know that spark is ok. Then we go after injector pulse or fuel delivery issue. So I'm assuming due to your story that the truck currently does not run correct ?
