    By nothing happens do any of the lights on the dash come on?
    Can you hear the starter click at all?

    I'm going to say dead battery as well.. Hook up a DMM and see what you get when you try to start it, or take it into vatozone and have them test the battery..

    If your battery checks good, clean the terminals.

    sometimes you leave a light on and dont know it ... Also, it could be that your alternator died and you just happened to make it home before the truck died

    My battery had No fluid in it and I kind of cooked it a little bit but for some after in it after the smell started coming from under my Hood I knew what it was. Charging now to see if it will hold. Thanks a bunch guys.
