How many miles do you have on this and what engine is in it?

Sorry for the delay.

The truck should hold 6 quarts, so if it's only got 3 in it, then it's low on oil. however most of the time if it's knocking it's usually to late and indicates some type of rod bearing failure. This would mean replacing the engine or having it rebuilt. One thing you should look for is if it's an auto transmission, check and make sure none of the torque converter bolts have backed out. If they have they can cause a knock.

Sorry to give you bad news.

Please let me know if there is anything else I can do to help.

I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
