Okay we most likely have a vacuum leak, do you hear an air sucking sound coming from engine bay

no

Do you have a check engine light on and a way to scan the engine, it would be real easy to determine vacuum leak if you did

If you light is on you can jump the pins in the aldl with a paper clip and get the codes by counting flashes

Let me ask you this if you went and stood behind your truck with it idling would the exhaust burn your eyes or your nose

I know it sounds crazy but it will tell me if it is running rich or lean
