Not starting

So i went to start my cold truck. It cranked a bit and then no more power. I boosted it and it started up. i drove it around a bit and when i got back home i tried to restart it and it cranked a few times but went dead again. Batteries?

Update

Ok so now i went to try boosting the truck again and the truck wont start. It just continuously turns over but doesn't start

Did you check your oil and the fuel level sometimes the gauges quit working

Is it spinning over fast? These engines need to spin at atleast 150rpm before it will fire.

Ok i hooked it up again and this time it started fine. i drove it a bit and i dont know if these lights just came on or were on since i started driving but the wait to start glow plugs light was on and the the one above it i believe "water in fuel" when i shutoff the truck they idnt come back on. truck started fine a few more times but this morning barely enough power to crank anymore.

Just got 2 kirkland batteries from costo. 850CCA The ones in the truck were motorcrafts (probably originals - 750CCA). The truckstarted right up and turns over noticeably quicker than im used to.
