Did you test the Alternator on or off the truck? It might be a problem with the control system to the Alternator. The regulator need a battery feed to work, It is usually ran through an alternator fuse.

Has the stereo been changed recently? If not move to the cigerett lighter. These two are most likely the prob. But you could have a bare wire anywhere grounding out. Good luck and hope you find it.

You can start the car and unhook the battery if it keeps running the altenator is good if it cuts off the altenator is bad.

Whats the battery voltage when you turn the key on or try to crank it? Have you checked to make sure the terminals are clean?
An almost dead battery will still read 12 volts until there is a load on it. Then you will see the voltage drop to almost nothing. Checking the battery voltage with the key on or with the headlights on will give you a better picture of the health of the battery. Since it starts and runs with a jump I would say a new batter is in your future.
