That's happened to me before, and it ended up being the starter.  
2003 F-250 CC/SB, FX4, factory 20's w/325's, 24V P-Pumped Cummins, 191 Delivery valves, 4K GSK, tork-tek OFV, rack kit, fully modified AFC, 5" straight pipe exhaust, Intake, Built Tranny- There's probably some other stuff I forgot about...  (Had a 7.3)

The starter solenoid (on the starter) is probably shot.  There is a small copper disc inside the solenoid and if you remove the solenoid from the starter, then remove the end cap from the solenoid, you'll see its probably got some bad burn marks on it.  You could clean it up with a wire brush and put it back together, but I'd recommend simply buying a new solenoid.
