3g dakota 4.7 has fuel and spark won't start

2008 Dakota 4.7 cranks has fuel to the rail and spark but wont even try to run. Tried start fluid into intake still nothing. What's going on? By rights I think it should at least give some sign of life. Thanks

All this stuff needs to happen at the right time. Are the injectors firing? Are the injectors firing at the correct time? Is the spark timing correct? Is the intake blocked? Is the fuel pressure correct?

The fact that you used starting fluid and it didn't fire says that you've probably got a spark timing problem or a blocked intake problem. How is your battery? Electronically controlled vehicles do many unhappy and strange things if battery voltage is low. Have your battery load tested, if it looks suspicious - replace.
