You should buy one of the manuals for this truck (their very cheap on ebay and they are very helpful on all kinds of little tricks, I think I got mine for like $1-2 or so
For my winter driving/summer driving I have completly different setups for my s.a.s. and fuel mixture (richness) screw and have very little troubles (live in MN)

Check the ignition system and set up the carb/s.
It sounds like the fuel mixture is too weak which could be a blocked tickover jet and/or the ignition system has a problem. If it is using a set of points, change the capacitor and check the points gap. If it is electronic ignition, check the ECU.
Hope that helps.

Your year--make--model didn't post for some reason? It makes it hard to look anything up.
Use a digital multimeter across battery posts, no jump, have helper crank it, how far does the voltage drop? Generic info says it shouldn't drop below 9.6 volts.
With engine cranking, all vehicle systems get battery voltage. Engine running, systems get alternator voltage, that is usually several volts higher.
There could be a voltage drop on the wiring or cables?
You can always check the basics, have helper crank it while you check for spark at the plugs, where applicable. If spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure and injector pulse.
