Did you have the battery load tested??? No just metered to say you have 13 - 14 volts. If you have a 300cca battery and it's only pushing 200cca it's not going to turn the engine over. Take a known good battery and install it in the truck. it should spin it. Or if you're insistent on using the old one then when someone turns the key over, with your fluke on the battery, see what the voltage drops to. If it's dropping to 6 - 9 volt I'd bet the battery is the culprit, just because you said you already put a new starter on.
