Did a good bit of googling and couldn’t find nothing about my problem. My problem I Go out to the truck to start it, push the clutch in, turn the key nothing. Tried again fuel pump starting running but sounds like someone is turning it on and off and the dash lights starts flickering, starter is doing the same thing as the fuel pump all while I’m holding the key on start. Literally drove the truck around the day before with no issues. Battery is only 3-4 months old. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

Sounds like you either have a bad ground or something is shorting out

Oh I just remembered that the truck has no inner wheel wells in the front. Probably just shot my self in the foot being that the fuse box is right there.... if it has something do do with the fuse box it’s weird that this problem finally showed up since it hasn’t had them from the middle of summer. (Too Big of tire which literally ripped them out going down the road)

I'd say that's  your problem. You smaller tires or splash tubs

Fiqured the problem out! Took the bottom of the fuse box off to find one wire that Fred two relays corroded off. Crimped a new connector on and the truck fired right up.
