Default 1999, 7.3, f350 cranking slow..why?

i have a late 1999 f350 7.3, zf6. cclb.

ive been having problems with my truck cranking slower than i think it should.. most of the 7.3s that ive heard have starters that turn over the engine really quick... it seems to me that mine isnt cranking nearly as fast... like only one of my batteries is hooked up.. and when im cranking it the lights dim out and sounds like the batteries are drained.... i got both batteries tested and they are good.. the alternator is charging and showing about 15 volts...

is my starter going bad? not sure what its called but is the link between my dual batteries bad? i think its an electrical problem other than anything else.

let me know what you guys think.. any input would be greatly appreciated
