No power to the ignition coil? Does the truck still get power and just not start? Check the ignition switch maybe?

Could be a bad ECM. Mine burn up and I wasn't getting any spark. You can unplug the ECM and crank it while someone else checks for spark/spray some starting fluid down the intake to see if it fires. If you get fire, it's the ECM.
