Sounds like your fuel pump module seal did not go in properly

Verify you have good strong spark at the plugs. Also you want to check the fuel pressure with a gauge. If it's within specs and you have good spark, it could be flooded. Once in a while these trucks will flood the plugs if the secondary ignition has not been replaced in a while. Try starting the truck with the throttle wide open (clear flood mode) and see if it fires. If not, look at the plugs and replace as needed.

First, I'd recommend you buy a manual, because the water pump is internally mounted, driven by the timing belt. You will also need a puller to remove the crankshaft pulley. You can usually rent/borrow this from the same place you bought the manual. The manual will also show you how to properly install the timing belt and compress the tensioner.
You will need to drain the cooling system, raise the car (safely), remove the right tire, right inner fender, right engine mount (aka front mount), accessory drive belts, timing belt cover, timing belt and tensioner (which needs to be recompressed correctly), and now you are at the water pump. Since the timing belt has to be removed, you should also replace it.

Disconnect the negative on the battery. Unbolt the small bolts under the gas door holding the fuel neck in place. Put a small floor jack under the gas tank holding it up and loosen the straps holding the tank in place. Once you have the gas tank down there is one ring holding the fuel pump in place. Remove the fuel hoses, electrical connecters and then the fuel pump. When you go to install everything back make sure to change the O-ring on the pump seal also. Install everything backwards of removal.

you may have had a timing belt brake. this usually happens under a load. I've seen this a few times,if you are between 80,000 and 100,000 miles or higher and the timing belt has not been changed. (a way to tell if it is the timing belt is to remove a valve cover and crank the engine if the rockers don't move the crank is not turning the cam/cams and its probably a broken timing belt) it may be that, or it may be an issue with the ignition/spark system if your getting fuel at the engine.i hope this helps
