Starting problems could be many things. Give us symptoms. White smoke while cranking? Cranking speed? How long is the WTS light on for before it goes off? My guess is a bad glow plug system with either bad timing, or air is getting in the fuel system.
As far as batteries are concerned, the above post asks good questions.
Its a 3/4-1 ton truck, the rear suspension will be rough. Put 1000 pounds in the bed and see how it rides. New shocks are a good idea.
