Help...Truck won't start

Ok I give up...
How do you jump start a powerstorke. I have had hell getting my truck started after my batteries died. The first time I had to buy a new battery cause a tow service couldn't jump me off and they towed me to Firestone and they could be me jump off. Tonight I had to have my wife bring me the extra battery I had to replace one of them in my truck to get it started.

This is driving me crazy....

A lot of amperage?

I've never jumped off a powerstroke. If the batteries are dead, take them out and charge them. If they are bad, replace them. The charging system is NOT designed to recharge dead batteries. You will kill the alternator. If it's an emergency, and only drive 2-5 miles, you'll just need a lot of amperage and the batteries must have over 10v for the injectors to fire.
