Battery/Charging system problem?

Just started last week truck runs fine next morning the batteries don't have enough juice to crank it over needs a hotshot. Checked the batteries after a 30 min. ride one was hot one was showing bad the alt. shows low at first then pops up to 14.2V dead again this morning hotshoted again drove 30mins checked it again not both batteries are charged alt. showed 14..v again but the drivers battery smells like rotten eggs and looks like it is puking a little around the caps which is a sign of over charging but I don't see that at all! Anyone run into this with their 6.4's and the charging system is still original 120k miles!

Looks like to drivers battery was the problem i let the truck sit a few hours came back and the battery was sizzling all by itself even out of the truck and most likely killing the other battery. Two news ones went in! Guess 5 years and 120K is not bad for the stockers!
