Did you check the fuel inertia switch ?
From the owners manual pg 155 :
Engine compartment :
Fuse # 10 - Fuel Pump
Fuse # 18 - Fuel injectors
Fuel pump relay relay #302
You can swap the fuel pump relay with one of the trailer tow adapter relays to test with.
You can always jumper the normally open contacts in the relay socket ( shown as the red line below ) :

it is in the fuel tank.. drop the tank, remove little snap ring on top of tank, and pull the old fuel pump assembly out, then just replace the old one with the new one.. good luck keith...

Engine Compartment fuse panel ( driver's side fender ) relay 301. Layout with numbers should be on the lid ( numbers only, not the functions ).
If you did not get an owners manual with your truck ( purchased used / lost ), you can download one from Ford in PDF format:

Did you check the fuel inertia switch in the passenger side kick panel ?
The fuel pump is powered :
the fuse to the fuel pump relay.
The fuel pump relay to the fuel inertia switch
The fuel inertia switch to the fuel pump itself.
At the fuel inertia switch in the kick panel, power from the relay is the Dark Green w/ Yellow stripe wire and the pink w/ black stripe wire is the power. from the fuel inertia switch to the fuel pump.
If you jumper the fuel pump relay, you should hear it run. If not pull the fuel pump relay, and check the pins in the relay socket, pin 30 should be the power from the fuse.
If you have power at pin #30, jumper the relay socket as shown with the red line above, and check the dark green w/ yellow stripe wire at the fuel inertia switch for power.
Press the button on the top of the fuel inertia switch, and check for power leaving the fuel inertia switch on the pink w/ black stripe wire.
This is tests good, check for power at the fuel pump, same pink w/ black stripe wire.
Fuel inertia switch info is in the owners manual, If you did not get an owners manual with your truck ( purchased used ), you can download one from Ford :
