    Take a volt meter and test the cable on the alternator to see if its putting out at least 13.8 volts if not replace it

    find a near dead battery that will start your truck, put it in and see what the output voltage is. should be over 14

    Found the problem, it was a broken wire on the alternator pig-tail connection. This was found under the wire sheething. If anyone has this problem, check there first.

    Thanks everyone, especially codeseven.
