SOURCE: won't start
The starter contacts inside the starter solenoid have worn down.
You can replace the starter or replace just the contacts in it to save $$$.
Unhook the battery.
Remove 12mm nut from starter and remove cable and signal wire.
Remove two 14mm bolts holding the starter in.
Now you can either replace or repair the starter.
To repair it, remove the 3 8mm bolts on the back of the solenoid and remove the trapezoid metal cover.
Pull out the plunger and spring
Remove the 12 and 14mm nuts on either side ofthe housing and push the bolts through; you can now remove the copper contacts inside the housing.
These are available at your Toyota dealership for around $10.
Reassemble in reverse order.

Testimonial: "THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!! Sure beats paying $800 at the shop!"
Try another starter and also try turning the crank bolt with a ratchet and socket to make sure that the crank isn't frozen in place. Do not leave the keys in the car when doing so. You don't want anyone messing around in the truck when trying that!
