Sarter has been going bad for a while now all it does is click. I can tell by the clicking sound where it is in general but need to know exactly where it is located and what other components I need to remove to get at it so I can replace it witha rebuilt one.

well its not security that only keeps form running , could be bad cell in battery or the starter is bad possible bad cables ? worse case engine locked upi would have the battery tested make sure cables ends are clean if ok remove starter and have tested if ok look at cables ? maybe make engine turns by hand
You probably need to change the ignition selenoid. It's what sends the current to the starter when you turn the key. If it is bad you'll just hear a clicking sound over and over till it warms up and finally connects. It will get worse over time.
Clean both post and terminals by removing the terminals. the clicking sound, sound like not having a good ground or contact knowing the battery is good. I would also try to eliminate the battery and bad ground and starter, To see if your starter is good, go ahead and have someone jump your car by attaching the cable as Positive directly to your car Positive post and the Negative to your car good ground contact. do not hook it up to your car negative post. If the car start, than your starter is fine. If it doesn't start than you have a bad ground or weak battery. Replace battery or clean ground. If it does not turn your engine over than you have a bad starter. hope that help some.
Check the condition of the power and ground cables, Bypass the cables with a set of jumper cables, connect the NEG post to the engine with the black cable, and POS to the Starter Solenoid with the red cable. then try it if it starts the cables are bad or poorly connected.
check the battery voltage in stand by and cranking, try jump starting the truck. if the truck will start with a jump the battery could be bad.
If the starter solenoid is separate from the starter then it is possible the solenoid is bad.
could be your ignition switch, first make sure you have power going from your battery to the starter, check at the starter for 12.5 volts then make sure starter has its ground, if that isnt it test the ignition cause thats probably what it is.
