The regulator could be sticking in the alternator. Unplug the alternator and see if the battery goes dead. I replaced an alternator once and the new regulator was bad.

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.

Something is obviously putting a drain on the battery, if all the things you had checked are good. If you disconnect the negative terminal on the battery touch it back, it should spark a little, but not alot. If it sparks quite a bit you know something is staying on that shouldn't. Possibly a glove box light, or if your truck has a light under the hood the mercury switch in it may have gone bad causing it to stay on. If it's taking 8 days to go dead you'll be looking for something small. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: 98 Jetta...stopped while driving
During this past winter, I was driving my 98 Jetta GL and it suddenly shut down in the middle of the road. It restarted but would only go a little ways before doing the same thing. I got it checked out and it turns out I had to get new fuses. I knew someone who could put them in it was very cheap to fix.

Replace your battery when its being tested there not testing it under a heavy enough load. A battery could have a dead cell in it and still show good on the charger. I've had that problem a few times.
