Would changing my battery help the truck start better? Because right now i have to rev it to get it to start right up other wise it cranks a few times.

You have to give it throttle for it to start? Doesn't sound like a battery issue to me. Possibly clean out the Idle Air Control (IAC), and make sure the throttle body is clean.

How old is the battery however
