Do you have a scan tool?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Can't remember
Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 9 months ago.

When do you think you will be able to respond to both of those questions so I can help you diagnose this rather than me making an educated guess.

Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 9 months ago.

While cranking, does your scan tool show the computer is getting a crank sensor signal?

At the ignition failure sensor is the blue wire powered with the key on?

Earlier you said the tach does move, now it does not?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
I tow my truck this morning I have it in my yard and when I crank it tachometer doesn't move at all
Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 9 months ago.

So far with the info I have been able to get about your vehicle. The ignition failure sensor is the likely issue for no spark.
