what year is your truck?

Check for spark during crank. You may have no spark when cranking but are powering up the coil. Releasing the key from crank momentarily cycles the coil and send a spark. You should see if you have a fuel pressure problem. Cycle the key three or four times. The fuel pump should pressure up to 44 to 54 psi on a single key cycle. If the fuel pump is weak, cycling the fuel pump several times may pump up the pressure and allow the vehicle to start. It won't run good but it gives you a clue on what to do next.

Any no start, check your basics. Spark, fuel pressure, injector pulse. Once you see what you have and what's missing it will tell you what to look at next. (most of the time. there are always exceptions)

truck is a 2001 and I hit the gas pedal a lot to get it to start but even that doesn't work

Cycling the key lets the fuel pump do the prestart prime of the fuel system. if you do it a few times with a weak pump each time you cycle the key the pressure will increase and possibly get high enough to start (not always though, it is just a place to start with) Pumping the pedal on a carburetor makes the accelerator pump prime the intake with a stream of fuel for each pump. There is no accelerator pump on a fuel injected vehicle. On a cold start the computer looks at the coolant temp sensor and allows more fuel just like the choke did on carb cars. But a carb has a fuel bowl to draw fuel from. Fuel injection has no bowl of additional fuel to draw from. Fuel injection needs pressure to push fuel out the injector nozzle while the computer opens the injector.

did you check the fuel pressure, spark and injector pulse? that it the beginning of any no start condition. See if you have the basics and go from there. If you have spark and injector pulse but poor fuel pressure the vehicle may want to start but hasn't enough fuel to stay running. If you have no spark out of the coil you may want to check the signal that is sent to the coil. If you have spark but no fuel injection pulse you may want to look at the signal to the computer for injector pulse.
