Sounds like maybe your battery is not getting charged. I would jump it again and test the voltage at the battery with the truck running. It should have some where around 14 volts. It it is closer to 12 volts or lower then you need to test the alternator

After the first time it turned off I jumped it the battery then few mins later turned off again what do think is the problem?

Well. If you can, charge the battery. If it starts and runs after you charge the battery. Then test alternator. If it starts with out have a jump after charge the battery but still dies. Then you may hVe an other problem. But without looking at it. It sounds like either the battery or the alternator or both is the cause
