Disconnect the battery (with the truck off, of course). Disconnect the main charging wire (black) from the alternator. Check continuity from that wire to the positive battery cable. I'm willing to bet that wire is broken somewhere. Most likely at the fusible links. You can unplug the fusible links and recheck continuity to verify where the wire is broken at.

The only other thing I could think of is a FUBAR voltage regulator. But you'd have constant voltage everywhere. What's telling me it's a broken wire is the 11V at the battery and 22V everywhere else...

i am assuming its the voltage regulator, but ill check the fusable links and that wire you are talking about. i just got back from a parts run so i will be able to check that soon enough. thanks for the feed back

There is also the chance that the broken wire blew out the voltage regulator.

Anyway, good to hear you got it fixed. Or at least diagnosed completely.
