You really need to elaborate on what you want to do or what you are trying to accomplish for anyone to offer up some solutions for you.

What is wrong with the starter if it cranks the truck?  If you want it back stock remove the solenoid on the firewall and run the wire on the junction that it was tied into back to the solenoid.

If it turns the motor over your starter is fine.  If you have to give it gas for it to crank you have a fuel or spark problem.  Does it ever crank and run?

Yes that diagram will help, but you just need to remove the Remote solenoid and put the stock on back in the loop.
So it is that you just don't like it then.  I was thinking that at first and then started thinking you had a problem cranking it...

Sounds like you need to grease the hinges and adjust the striker on the door.
