    Sounds to me like you've got one of two problems - either crummy battery cables, or a crummy starter/solenoid. I'd put more money on the cables and/or a poor ground plane.

    Make sure your battery cables are good along with the connecters... check to see you don't have like 20 feet of cable/wire too between everything too. Too long a cable/wire and not enough juice to power it through will kill any current and then kill you starting up your truck or make it a project... check your battery if it's good. It also might be the starter/solenoid. Even a new starter can be bad because they come from the shop defective... also make sure your alternator is good and can handle all the toys you have hooked up to your beast... I had so many dead battery's it drove me crazy... I had a grounding wire that drained the battery... so hey could be one simply thing or a combination of a few things... good luck.

    C'mon captain break pedal... quit looking for the parade and drive!! [​IMG]
