There must be something causing this issue in the truck wiring,or could be the ECM is bad,not letting it charge the battery.

well i changed ground from battery to block but was curious about ground from chassis to firewall

When you turn on the key do you see the little battery light? That light has to work, it is part of the exciter circuit, if it works then it is like T S T stated, a wiring or ECM glitch.
