For what it's worth, when diagnosing charging system issues on these trucks, bear in mind that when the engine is first started cold, the glow plugs can remain energized for up to two minutes AFTER the engine is started depending on how cold the ambient temperature is. Since glow plugs draw A LOT of current, you will see decreased voltage readings when they are energized, which can lead you to believe you have a weak alternator.
