    11.3 volts is not going to be sufficient to operate your truck, as you already have found out.

    The battery needs to be fully charged first, which will bring it stand alone to about 12.6 volts.

    Then, you can perform a charging system check and find out how many amps and volts are being put out at 2,000 RPM. I would suspect you have a faulty alternator.
