Getting fuel ND getting spark

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!
If you do have proper fuel pressure and spark, there are no codes setting an no security lights or warnings (injector pulse present), then the first things I would suspect are fuel quality and an exhaust restriction. If catalytic converter material breaks up the pieces can migrate until the exhaust outlet is blocked and it can result in a no start condition.
The first thing I would recommend is taking a fuel sample to check for water, excessive ethanol, diesel fuel, make sure it isn't stale or otherwise contaminated.
