Answers :

The truck starts but stalls as soon as the key goes from the start back to the run position?

Have you tried keeping your foot on the gas as soon as it starts to see if it will stay running?

If it does and then stalls as soon as you take you foot off the gas the first thing I would look at is the IAC (Idle Air Control) valve. It will be bolted to the top of the intake plenum near the throttle body. Sometimes a good cleaning will resolve the issue.

If it doesn't run if you try giving it a little gas than make sure the air snorkel between the air box and the intake plenum is mounted correctly and there is no leaks. You can also try unplugging the MAF sensor to see if it is causing the problem.
No on top of the tank on these vehicles is a antitheft device its called a frequency switch and it will not pass current till it recieves a signal from the immobilisor which is in the back drivers side panel in the back ,anyway drop tank again and join the two fat wires together with a block connector and make sure its well greased and the cable ends then cover it with tape as well .This will cure your problem iam sure
