Unhappy Truck will not start

Truck ran fine. Picked up a new coil, spark plugs, and spark plug wires at my local parts store. I took the old ones off and outthe new one on amd it will not start.

All wires are sparking
Tried the old coil
Spacing on plugs is as accurate as I could get it
Firing order has been triple checked

Please help I dont know what to do

Start looking at other things besides what you just replaced. Often when working under the hood wires or vacuum lines or ... get knocked off and un-noticed. Test for a fuel problem by shooting some starter fluid into the intake. Check fuel pressure, etc.
Even with the 2 cylinders that generally get miswired it should still start.
