fuel pump sounds like the problem... if it turns over but not start its not gettin enough gas. either that or check the battery for the lights, but that would make it not turn over if it was a dead battery... stupid question but did you check if it has gas in it?

Heck for $225 I'd buy it just for the parts--probably with a new battery you can drive it home---bob

Im thinking it may be the ignition switch or a wire going to it. I had the same thing happen to my '88 F-150. None of the lights worked in the cab or anything. Also it may be a ground problem...speaking from experience having been left without a truck for some time; not fun :(
