If it turns over strong its not the battery. Clicking in the fuse box sounds like a relay to me.

Clicking typically means the battery is dead.

Again if the engine is turning over strong it is not the battery or the starter. Also according to the original post the clicking is coming from the fuse box, not the starter.

Open the fuse box, lay you hand across the relays, try to start and feel which one is clicking. Try swapping it with an identical working relay and see it it solves problem, just remember which one you swapped it with. Or just replace relay.

Are there any circuit opening relays that are part of the old alarm? It may need to be energized depending on the setup in order for the truck to start.
