I recently had a similar problem. I drive a 94 ram 1500 with the 3.9 6 cylinder. When I replaced the coil it started right up but then cut out and wouldn't start. So I wiggled the wire that plugs into the coil and tried to start it and it fired up again and the next day it wouldn't start. My problem was were the wires connected to the plug came loss. I went to the junk yard found any ram truck from 94 to 01 with either gas engine 3.9-5.2-5.9 and cut the plug off with decent amount of wire and installed it on mine and problem was solved. I also had a catalytic converter problem about 3 months after that was similar but it would start right up and run in neutral fine but when it gear it would bog down and eventually stall. Good luck.

Check your ignition relay in the powerbox. Most Relays have numbers on them and Ford often uses the same Relay for the Horn. You can go to Autozone.com and register your truck for FREE and then make prints of your Fusebox and your entire Chassis wiring. Once you verify which Relay is for the Horn and Ignition, you can swap them and see if the horn works.
If the horn does not work, then the Relay was bad and you can use the former horn relay and stick it in the Ignition position and drive your truck.
I want to also point out that under the dash you will have a switch on the Brake pedal lever and on the clutch lever, that are lockouts for the starter. But when a foot hits them and moves them or breaks them, any type of connection is possible. You may still have a starter connection but lose other electric power.
If what we have tried still does not get you going; check the voltage going into your coil. You could just have a bad coil.
I looked up your engine and my records show either a 7.5L or a 5.4L and the last year for the 351 was in 1996.
