ummm a few that always have power are the cigarette lighter...and i think that possibly your dome lights are always powered....just depends on how you tap into it.....

good batteries can be bought at advance auto for pretty cheap.....

I went with Duralast Golds from autozone, 1000 CA and 800 CCA if I remember correctly, I don't feel like going outside right now so I'm not exactly sure. Plus they had a really good warrenty.

Took the truck to the dealership today and had them test out the electrical system. Turned out that one of the plates in my passenger side battery warped into another one and the battery short circuited itself. I didnt even know that could happen but apparently its caused by repeated charging and killing of the battery. So one new battery and all is well again
