Sounds like corroded or loose battery connections. Also clean and tighten the negative connections on the frame and motor. Pay real close attention to these two. I feel they might just be your main issue.

Oh and if truck will only crank normally when it's being jump started that says to me that all electrical systems on the truck are working properly and there is some kind of connection issue with your own battery.
