Depending on where you got the alternator it could be a dud. I've bought a few like that from auto zone.

Take the car to autozone and have them check it for free. If not charging, remove alternator and take the alternator only again and see if alternator charges, if it does then u know for sure it's ur truck and start troubleshooting but at least u'll have a clue where the problem is
