You hear the relay. You don't hear the pumps? Check the fuel filter. Check the roll over protection, passenger side foot well close to where your left foot would rest under the carpet. You can bypass with a piece of wire. Check the wiring going to both pumps, one is in tank, the other is on the frame rail close to under where the e-brake is, IIRC behind a metal bracket. The fuel filter will be in the same area. It's an old truck and the fuel pumps don't work forever unfortunately.
Good luck,

Richard
