If the pump continued to run after shutting off the car you fuel pump relay was probably staying latched. I would replace the relay as well based on your info. Along with the pump the fuel filter should be replaced too and fuel pressure should be checked. Make sure your ground is good also.
The only way to know for sure is to hook a gauge to the rail and check the fuel pressure when it won't start. Sitting for a few minutes and restarting is normally a sign of a relay or coil cooling off. There should be a EEC relay that powers the dist module and ECM. I know you said you have spark, but it could be something else related. Also, if you have spark at the right time and no fuel pressure, you should be able to use starting fluid to substitute. I don't suppose you have dual tanks and the switching valve is the problem ?
check all your rounds on the body, behind kick panels, and in engine compartment. The relays you hear clicking are the power relay whcih turns your engine computer on. The other relay is the fuel pump relay, which is turned on by the engine computer. start there, report back.
PS. When you press the gas pedal to the floor during cranking, it shuts off the fuel supply to clear a flooded engine.
If this happens every time you start your truck and it shuts off the same each time, you just might have a dirty fuel filter only allowing so much gas pass through until it clogs once again. I once had a chevy van, when I would drive it, would go a few miles and engine would shut down. I would wait 10 or 15 minutes, it would start up and allow me to drive a few more miles then shut down again. I changed the fuel filter, It was fine after that.
