Hopefully you don't have a blown head gasket. The two hoses going to the radiator are for oil cooling but the cooling tube in the radiator may be leaking oil into the coolant. YES replace the radiator and have the cooling system flushed and use an external oil cooler. DO NOT drive the truck until this is done, you can severely damage the engine if you do.

What about if it's standard
