Best Answer

Assuming the battery and cables are in good condition, could be defective starter. It seems like the quality of starters and alternators from parts stores have gone down hill lately. If you have a multimeter, you can place the red lead on battery cable at starter and black lead to ground and start truck. If your getting good voltage to starter when cranking, then bad starter.
