Bring your truck to a professional mechanic, don't attempt surgery on yourself at home.
Another suggestion would be to try and determine the cause of the overheating situation:
Is the collant low? Check the collant levl.
Is there a puddle of coolant under the truck after it sits overnight? Repair the leak!
Check the oil: does it look milky brown? Replace the head gasket.
Start the truck and revthe engne: Is there steam cming out the tailpipe? See head gasket, above.
If none of these things are apparent, then either you need a new water pump or your radiator is clogges up. Go to auto parts store and ask for a bottle of radiator flush. Follow instruction on the label. If THAT doesn't work, you can onlywin by givng the truck to a pro.
