Possibly a fuel issue but when has it had its spark plugs changed last? Crank position sensor or cam position sensor would be the next to check. When you turn the key without trying to start it just turn the key on and listen you should hear a small whirring noise coming from the back of your truck on the outside of the vehicle. If you don't then bad fuel pump

we changed the main computer it started the owner left in it got 5 miles away and it shut down

he took it mudding hit a big puddle that covered the entire truck I didn't know the air intake was full of water when it got brought here
