Was running then tried to start hours later . No start just cranks, no longer hear fuel pump prime. Changed relay and fuel pump today and checked inertia switch. Gas tank sending unit is working. Lost please help , what am I missing, not filter issue since I no longer hear pump on turn of key

Welcome to this forum! Do you have a check engine light? The fuel pump is controlled by the PCM.

I am sure you checked the fuel pump fuse? EEC fuse? (All fuses actually)
Next step would be to check for power in different places, starting at the truck to fuel tank wiring connector...do you have a multi meter or a test light? We need to see where the pump power is and is not
