    I can jump start my truck and she runs fine. The battery charge shows normal hovering around 12 - 13 Volts. But then after I park it and leave her for a couple of hours the battery is D E A D. Could it be my alternator, I am thinking not becasue it keeps a charge. What could be sucking the battery after parked. I am going to take it back to Autozone and have them test and charge it. It is a Dura Last 800 cold cranking amps.

    Sounds like your battery has had it - I've had the same problem with DuraLast batteries.

    If you can charge it, pull the battery (so absolutly nothing is connected to it) and it looses charge, then it's the battery. If it stays up, then something is draining it. I know that's not much help, but then again, I don't know what all you have hooked up to your battery (stereo, etc)
