Check the large contacts at the starter and the battery for security and corrosion. You should be able to run a jumper wire from the battery to the small wire on the solenoid and make the truck start. You should be extremely careful when doing this to make sure the truck is in neutral, the parking brake is set and all that stuff. Running a jumper wire to try to start it bypasses every safety measure that’s on the truck. Try tapping the starter with a hammer to see if that helps it engage. If that doesn’t do it, I’d suspect the starter is bad.
