Default 1996 Dodge Ram 1500 5.2 V8 Aftermarket Security Issue

I bought my truck off of a guy who had not touched it in years, it has 109k miles on it and I am doing everything I can to get it to start, it has new plugs, wires, distributor, rotor, tried 3 different ignition coils, crank position sensor, and battery. One time when starting it smoke started to come out of the vent but then went away and never happened again. Then I took the dash apart and found that there was an aftermarket security system installed (I believe it was a MAS Los Angeles system) and there are many wires that are not connected. When you spray a ton of starting fluid into the air induction it will start to turn over then die. Yet there is no spark getting to the engine. I have put many hours into this truck and I want some pay off by getting it started. If anyone can help me with anything, I'd appreciate it, any advice is welcomed. Thank you.
