Either you are putting the cable on the wrong battery terminals, or your battery has a dead short in it.

phooey...seems like someone reverse jumped and blew the diode pack, on the alternator~ seems like perhaps you should have called AAA, cause it is very easy to get the polarity switched...so check the alternator...perhaps get a free one because it's so new~...what can I say....a painting to soften the blow here~

I hope you are not using a running vehicle to jump your truck, if so you can damage the charging system of the running vehicle, newer charging systems are not designed to to carry a load like that. That being said, disconnect the alternator electrically, then try to jump start it then, if it starts and runs then you have a short in the alternator.
