That sounds like some bad or corroded battery cables, make sure the terminals and battery post and shines clean, none of that black corrosion, if that checks good then you may have to do a voltage drop test on the cables, possible corrosion already inside the cables themselves.

Make sure the terminals are cleaned and fresh to make contact with that new battery - Also wouldn't hut to have the alternator check to make sure it is charging the new battery

I get power everywhere until I try to start the truck then everything shuts down immediately

Does it come right back on after you release the key? if it was running and then died and didn't have enough power to turn it back over your battery does not have enough power to crank it - therefore the battery has failed, bad connection or bad alternator. I have actually purchased a brand new battery and it failed immediately after I installed it - never got the car running until I took it back and exchanged it.
