YOU MAY HAVE A BAD KEY IGNITION SENSOR. IF YOU OPEN UP YOUR STEERING WHEEL COLUMN YOU WILL SEE A SENSOR ON THE LEFT HAND SIDE OF THE STEERING WHEEL. iT LOOKS LIKE A MUSHROOM AND SHOULD HAVE A WIRING HARNESS ATTACHED TO IT. IF YOU DETACHED THE HARNESS THE KEY SHOULD COME OUT SMOOTHLY; THUS YOUR PROBLEM IF KEY DOESNT COME OUT GOD ONLY KNOWS.

the starter should be replaced. The solenoid is kikcing the pinion out but there is no contact being made to turn the starter motor. I have the exact same truck and before i changed the starter used the old starter tap trick. Tap the starter casing with a hammer and it should start turning again. hope this was helpful for you. Good luck.

i bet its your "Check Engine Light" take it to a auto-parts store and ask them to check the engine codes...maybe it will tell you what all is wrong with it...most of those places do it for free hoping you will buy the parts you need from them.

I wonder if your battery is really in an excellent shape. The way you described seem to be non sufficient voltage for the starter solenoid to engage completely. Make a quick observaton by leaving the headlight on while cranking the engine. If no significant drop on the headlight brightness. Then your battery is assumed to be good. (a cold crank voltage shouldn't below 10V) Then the remained items to work with is either the solenoid or the starter or both. I believe the solenoid is piggy pack on the starter. Most autopart stores would test it for free of charge.
