My son called lives out of town went to AutoZone for battery replacement just for preventative maintenance.
They switched out for him now it will crank but won't idle. He had it towed to a shop but doesn't have any reports yet what is wrong.
What should he expect?

Yes I went nuts with the dead battery problem till I found TSB_EL015-03. Seems the frist half of the production year 2003 Tundra has a problem with the tow package relay being left energized if you leave the lights in the daytime running position so that they turn off by opening the door, it will run the battery down. Toyota knows this, won't do a recall, but there is a kit you can get that is listed in the Technical Service Bulletin EL015-3. When it tell you to use a special tool to remove a pin from the large connector (red) don't bother, you will never get it out. Just cut the red wire and use a crimp tool to splice it to the kit's wire. There is no room to work it, just cut it and splice it. http://www.toyotanation.com/forum/123-truck-archive/74107-2003-battery-draining.html
