Good morning sorry for delay

Two common things come to mind,

the after cooler can leak coolant into cylinders and burn off in exhaust without you seeing any leaks

pressure testing is needed to confirm or you can remove it and usually see traces of coolant on air side of cooler

Next would be a blown head gasket or cracked head you would need to do a combustion gas leak test to confirm if you are getting exhaust gases in coolant and it's being burned out exhaust, a test kit is available at most truck shops or search online click here to view test kit
