Check to make sure that there is no corrosion on the battery terminals, and also check the other end of the ground for corrosion. (where it attaches to the truck)

Yeah definitely check for corrosion I had a similar issue happen one day- everything powered up ok but it would not start, it would just click. I popped the hood and was trying to start it again and saw arcing on my negative terminal.
I pulled the negative off the battery and the inside was corroded bad. Cleaned it off good and nailed it with terminal sealer to keep it from doing it again. Fired it right up.
