Ignition? Fuel? The list of things to check is relatively short.
Make sure you have a spark, then check the fuel pressure.

the truck is a 4 cylinder. from what i was told, it ran just fine the
night before. then the next morning it would not start. Not sure if
this has anything to do with it, but it rained like cats and dogs that
evening. I checked the wires, but did not pull the plugs. Might be the
next step. are there more than one fuel pumps? one in tank and one
external? how often do they go out. thanks again!

For what it's worth, I have 150,000 on the stock pump. I put an new
fuel filter in it a few weeks ago and the damn thing was really plugged.
I got a code reader and book from someplace a few years ago for
30-40 $ and used it to pull codes in my 87 Bronco II and the 94
Ranger, the Ranger didn't have anything wrong.
Listen with your head near the tank while somebody switches it from
OFF to the run position and try to hear if the pump runs.
If it has never had the timing belt replaced I recomend having that done
after you get it running. Mine died a few weeks ago and took an expensive
crank position sensor out with it.
