Get a voltage meter and put it across your battery. It should be at least 12.4 volts especially for a new battery!

Either your battery is a defect or you have a battery drain in the system!

Is there anything else it could be I took my truck to two different stores had them check the battery and the alternator and they both said everything was fine with them

I would get a voltage meter and check out your battery voltage should be at least 12.4 volts. Also, with the car running put it on the battery should read at least 13.5 volts and no more than 15 Volts

The starter may be drawing too much current when you try starting it without jumping. Get the starting system check and have the starter current measured. Also get the battery charged and tested.

An extremely large parasitic draw maybe. Check the main cable on the battery and the starter, make sure you have good connections
