Default Truck won't start?? totally stumped

1997 Ram 1500 360 engine will not start. I went out and got a brand new battery so terminals clean, cables are good it's getting power from it just fine. It's got oil, water, gas and I spent all day following lines from the gas tank, checking wires and plugs and it all looks good. When I go to start it it turns over and tries real hard to start like the batteries just low but when I give it gas it rocks the engine a bit and sputters and just will not fire.

Anyone had any thing like this happen before? Tomorrow I'm going to do a little test I know to see if it's getting spark. Also gonna get a buddy to turn the key to the on position and listen really hard in the gas tank cause I should be able to hear the fuel pump in the tanks electric motor turn on to see if that's working.

Honestly I'm just really stumped and never had any vehicle do this strange thing before. Any input or ideas would be great. Thanks, Sam.
