The jump charge may have potentially damaged the trucks "brain". Try disconnecting the battery terminals for about 10 minutes then reconnect them. This should allow the computer to reset and possible correct the transmissions going to the front power control module. If the condition persists then you may need to replace the power control module which will need to be reprogrammed by a mechanic.
