yes you need to replace the starter because most likely the seliniod is attached to the starter and you have to buy the whole thing

place truck on ramps or jack stands, rfmove battery cables from battery, go under truck locate starter, remove wires connected to starter, remove bolts from starter, it will fall out if not careful

Sooooooo. The relay coil is drawing more current than the fuse can handle..... First guess is a short in the wire between the fuse and the relay coil. I would disconnect the wire that powers the solenoid relay coil. Then I would try (momentarily) clip leading a wire to the battery positive terminal - and touching the other end to the relay coil terminal connection. (Caution!! you are bypassing the factory wire and its associated fuse. If your temporary wire becomes hot - IMMEDIATELY remove it from the coil.) ------------------------However, I suspect that you will have the coil energized and that the engine will turn over....since the key is not in the ON position, the motor will not start.
If this works-then you know that the factory wire is touching the chassis somewhere... and you can either remove it and run another from the fuse to the coil terminal - or try to find the point of the short (good luck - and let me know)
