The Fuel pump relay is in the Power Distribution Box under the hood, it is relay K. If it is the fuse then fuse 17 in the PDB.
It could also be the cut off switch, which is either under the dash above the brake pedal or behind the passenger kick panel

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:
Makes it real quick to search for keywords.

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 :

The Fuel pump relay is a non serviceable relay ( built into the fuse panel ) in the 04-08 MY F-150s.
Did you check the Fuel Inertia switch ( in the passenger side kick panel by the fuse panel ) ?
If you are having a no fuel pressure issue, might want to take a look at the FPDM ( Fuel Pump Driver Module ) on the cross member above the spre tire ( need to drop the spare to see if ).
There is an issue with 04-07 ( 04-06 ?? ) MY trucks where the FPDM is bolted directly to the cross member, and dissimilar metal corrosion happens and builds up behind the FPDM, causing it to break.
Here are some before and after pictures from my 2006, I replaced mine for the heck of it and found that the case had cracked with ~ 51K miles on it, soon the PCB would have cracked leaving me stranded
New version of the FPDM with the stand off studs
This is the kit I got ( check that the Part Number has not been changed )

Testimonial: "thanks for the tip i'll check it out. i've tried to reset the fuel cut-out but it's hard to tell if it resets and finding a test point to prove it is well.... daunting. i have no fuel pressure whatsoever and the fuel pump will not run although it will if i put 12v directly to the fuel pump motor so i know it's not the fuel pump."
