Thanks everyone for the help, really appreciate it! I've now flown back home and left the truck in Pennsylvania. I will be getting it shipped back home instead where I can take my time to diagnose this issue (and it's not below 0!). If it's indeed working now with the new alternator, I will just leave it as is. If there are still issues, I will just replace it with a modern alternator as you guys recommended.

Thanks again, this forum is awesome!

Just wanted to post an update.

Truck is home and is driving and charging fine. It seems the alternator was the issue and not the voltage regulator. It takes putting it into gear and starting to drive though before the charging light goes out but it does so right away when I drive off.
