Go under and jumper the solenoid wire to the positive batter cable at the starter and see if it cranks over, if it does the startwer sub solenoid may be defective, it is near the battery and the positive cable goes to it from the battery and then out to the stater.
It definetly sounds like starter motor issue....there are 2 circuits within the starter motor, one is the pullin winding, that brings the gear close to the flywheel, and the motor windings that "cranks" the motor. It sounds like the pull in windings are working but the cranking circuit has failed.
This requires a starter motor replacement.......what you can do is "lightly" tap the starter motor with a blunt object and it might start once or twice, but a replacement is highly suggested.
the shims are not why you go thru starters. Usually its caused because the heat shield was not reinstalled or the wiring is bad. Bad wiring causes the stater to draw lots of amps leading to overheating and damage. If the truck runs go to a repar shop and have them do a starter cranking test. If it passes then I would be looking for a heatshield if missing
Try hitting the starter with a hammer but not too hard,if it then starts then the brushes in the starter are bad,usually only 2 of the 4 go bad and they dont make contact,the brush kit is only $20.00 and real easy to change,a new rebuilt starter is about $90.00,my starter went out in the middle of winter on my 94 Bronco when i was parked over a water puddle,boy was i wet!..Now for the other persons problem it may be the ignition switch at the base of the column which is about a $10.00 part and 2 screws
