I do not know your truck very well...My heart lies with Jeep CJs and older Fords.
I am gonna throw some stuff, just to get things started.....No CJs broke at the present time!
Others may jump in and help!
I really doubt the starter itself was affected
Check "ALL" of your fuses, there may be some you don't know of, consult your owners manual.
Check Fusible Links......Lost?
I will send you a link about older Fords and Jeeps pay attention to what they (F.L.) are/ do and How I check them. They possibly could be in places other than at the solenoid.
I will continue to assist you the best I can, even If I have to find and drag another expert in! I may be able to send pics or diagrams, just keep detailed info, so that we will know whats been done, etc.
Do you have/ know how to use a digital voltmeter? If not I do have some homemade pics/ explanations on SOME methods of using it...Let's see how we stand, before "school" starts!
I'm also sorry I have been slack, there may also be How To's in our site....I just haven't explored around..Feel free!
Keep us informed, usually you will get more inputs than mine.
