Sure sounds like a fuel problem...
Try turning the key to the ON possition when you get in the truck.. do not attempt to start the truck until the fuel pump stops its cycle ( pressurising the system)...
Start the truck...
You could have a fuel pump going bad... or a plugged up fuel filter..

Hi,
this seems like its a problem with your alternator, it might not be charging correctly, check the voltage with a volt meeter on the battery terminals, if the voltage is lower that 13 or 14 volts, you might need a alternator rebuild!
