I solved the problem!
I tried all of the above and got nothing, so I went back to the relay, took it off and jumped it! Imagine my surprise when I turned the key and it actually started! I guess the "new" relay that I bought was not actually new.
For anybody who is reading this and having the same problem, try the following to determine if it is just your relay that is bad (based on my vehicle stated above, yours may be slightly different):
1. Remove the starter relay from inside the fuse box under the hood.
2. Place a piece of wire between the 85 and 87 terminals where you pulled the relay from, which should be the two closest to the driver side fender (be 1000% certain that the wire does not touch anything else).
3. Try to start the truck using the key, if it starts then you have a bad relay, if it does not then the problem is something else.
Thanks again rasmataz for all of your help, I wish I would have found this site before I replaced the ignition switch! I have a couple more problems that I need to address, so if I cannot figure them out I will be back again soon!
