I have a 2001 Fort Sport Trac 170k 4.0 V6 2wd a couple weeks ago I drove home and a few minutes later went to start it and it just cranks. Checked the fuel cutoff switch all good, replaced the fuel pump relay no help It will start when it's cold fine but if u run it it wont start when hot once it starts it's fine no codes or check engine light any help is appreciated

Have you scanned for codes, even though the CEL isn't on? There may be code history there we need to know.

Truck started up and drove it to Autozone and no codes found and no CEL drove it home fine any Idea what it could be, maybe a fuel pump or something else

The next time it cranks and won't fire, pull one spark-plug wire/coil and see if there is spark. You might as well pick up a can of starting-fluid, its cheap and will probably be the next thing to try if you do have spark; you can try that during the same no-fire episode.
