My assumption since you replaced two starters, is that it is not the battery or charging system. I had a similiar problem with a bad ground from engine to negative battery/chassis.
I found that everytime the vehicle was boosted, it would get a good ground from the boosting vehicle (always clamped negative booster cable to engine) and start, then, on its own, it acted as if the starter was bad. The root cause was a flaky engine ground (the large battery cable connected to the engine block). Quick test to find out: clamp one end of a jumper cable onto a metal spot on the engine and the other onto the negative battery terminal (idea is to connect only the negative battery terminal to the engine---do not connect anything to positive). If this allows the vehicle to start, you better check the ground from the battery/chassis to the engine.
