I was driving along and the truck just shut down. There is no lights, no horn, nothing. The battery is new, the solenoid is new, the ICM is new, the fuel pump is new. Everything that I can replace is new. All the fuses appear to be good. What could be my problem?

Did you check for voltage, anywhere? Use a testlight. Check for voltage at the fuse box, some fuse circuits are hot all the time, some go hot with the key on. Check fusible links, they should have voltage on both sides.

Note the starter wiring.
