If all cables and battery check out....make sure you have a good ground. If that is all good you need to check if you are getting battery voltage down to the solenoid with the key in the start position. If not most likely it's the ignition switch...if voltage is ok check connections at starter and again make sure ground is good. You should see battery voltage at the solenoid when the key is in the start position....at the battery cable and the smaller wire on the solenoid. If all checks out and still no-start...you need a starter.

Did you get a new battery with the right specifications for your truck? If so I would get the alternator checked because maybe it isn't charging your battery correctly........but first go and make sure the battery cables are #1 Clean so they make good contact on both + and - posts. #2 Make sure the cables are tight so they make good contact. If they are both good then you might have a bad ground from the batter to where it bolts to the frame/firewall.
Hi Anonymous, lift up rubber boot on positive cable to starter, unplug starter relay wire usually green, with a jumper wire connected to positive battery cable starter stud, touch blade connecter on starter where starter relay wire was removed. If starter engages and turns over engine then your starter relay is bad. If starter activates but does not engage then your starter drive/clutch is bad. Good luck
disconnect the s terminal on the starter and connect the battery, if the starter engages then its the starter, if it doesnt check the voltage on the small wire it should be dead unless the key is in the start pos
Also check to see if there is power in the start wire form the ignition switch, the wire is a white wire with pink stripe, most likely not a common problem, but still something that could go wrong. this wire will feed the starter relay under the hood...
