Pull the codes.
What's your fuel pressure?

Let us know a little more about your truck, like mods and what not.

I dont know fuel pressure. I dont have a diagnostic scanner. Everyhting on the truck is original
No mods, automatic 2x4
2nd transmission in 2004
replaced crank case sensor last year

Not sure if it is related BUT I put new batteries in the truck in OCT 11. PRIOR to doing this I would get a surge on my RPM when I was running about 45-50 mph and staying around this speed. It would always shift through if I accelerated. AFTER putting the new batteries in I noticed that the truck did not have the surge. When my truck started taking longer to turnover here recently, The surge started back up again at 45-50mph. I literally was driving my truck and pulled into my home and 2 hours later I tried to start it and it clicked a few times then the second time nothing. I did try jumping it off.I hope that makes sense. Seems like power is being drawn from the batteries but I pulled them and had them professionally tested. They are good.

PS The truck has 175000 miles (original)
lift pump has never been replaced
fuel pump never replaced
terminals cleaned
Could it be a fuse?

I don't think you can pull the codes on a 99. But if you can, you do it by turning the key to the on position three times leaving it in the on position. Then look at your odometer.
Lets start with starter. Have someone turn the key to the start position while you put a volt meter across the heavy cable on the starter and the truck frame. Also check the voltage from the cable on the starter solenoid to the truck frame.
If you have 0 volts you know it's not the starter.
Of course have the truck in park and the brake on while you do this.

Yes you can. I think you can pull the codes on a '97, for sure a '98 - present. And the key trick only works on an '01 and '02. So an OBDII scanner is needed for a '97, '98, '99, and to get all the codes from an '01 and '02, because the key trick doesn't show every code.

IIRC there is a fuse and relay in the box underhood. Turn on your headlights and try to start, if they dim, it's drawing juice. I had a terminal fail on my 99 at 140k. Connection looked good.

there should be a fuse for the starter, check to see if it popped. i came home one day and then went to go some where 30 min later and nothing, checked my fuses and the starter was burnt put in a new one and clicked and the fuse popped. took starter out and it was bad. the truck only had 150k of that most on it
