Well first have you charged your battery back up, if so then try to by pass the ingintion switch by just connecting the two main post of the colenoid with a piece or wire, this creates a direct wire basically from your battery to your starter, if still no luck you will need a new starter located more to the drivers side close to right under the pedels on the bottom side of the truck.

Most vehicles if you get the car running and unhook the positive battery cable it will stay running that is because it is running off the alternator. if it dies like your talking about I would most definitely say your alternator needs to be replaced. Most likely when you jumped your father in laws pick up there was a bad ground somewhere and your alternator got a surge of electricity and it fried it. Hope this helps.

Sounds like something isn't wired right. Is solenoid staying on after start? Take positive cable loose from starter and listen to solenoid when you turn key to start and then release--does the solenoid click off, or does it not click off until you turn the key off? If the latter, there is a feedback wire from the starter post to the solenoid start terminal.
Also sounds like alternator is dead or has internal short. I would take the alt wires loose until you get the starter problem fixed. Then maybe take that alternator to be tested.
If this is not the problem, can you start over for me and tell me why you changed the solenoid, etc.?

SOURCE: battery keeps dying
well if the battery is good when you leave it it must have a voltage draw you have to take off one of the leads off the battery and put a inline amp meter to see how much draw..then you use an amp meter a light or buzzer and you pull fuses till the amps go down the light goes out or the buzzer stops depending on what you used.. then you go from there ..your going to need a schematic of the electrical system to see exactly what is off that fuse...or leave it out if you can live without it..interior lights ect
