'03 6.0 random dead batteries?

Hey y'all, just wondering what you might think about this. About three times in the last 4 months when I went to start my truck, it just clicked. Jump it with the wife's van and it starts right up. ( I let it charge for a few minutes, of course.)
I know nothing has been left on.
It's very random problem, makes no sense. It has done it after sitting for a few days but it's also done it when I've been driving it everyday.
I have also started noticing a little stiction in the mornings too. (50 and under, or so.)

'03 6.0 PSD /Torq-shift auto, 108K miles, CC, 4x4, mostly stock. Edge tuner set to "economy", cat back, coolant filter and a EGR delete....

Any ideas?

Your cells in your batteries are probably starting to go. I would have the batteries load tested at auto parts store and have your alternator checked it only cost about ten minutes of your time. Good luck.
