This can happen in the older GM trucks and cars (the ones with 2 different keys, square for ignition and round for the door). There are a couple of different ways this can happen. Either the gear at the back of the lock has broken (or come loose) or there is a part further down in the steering column that also can break that would cause this symptom. Some call it the "rack" because the dealers replacement part is called a "rack kit".

Have to turn headlights off and heat to get truck to start?

This sounds like a battery that isn't putting out it's full load of cranking amps anymore. However, when you turn the key to "start" a relay should automatically turn off all of your electrical devices. So I would start there with the starter relay.
