Sounds like you have a clogged exhausted converter.

Hear is a simple and easy way to check. Wait till night time and let truck run for a while then look under truck at exhaust system if converter is clogged it will turn cherry red letting you know it is clogged.

If you can, go under the truck and see if you can find any areas that may be smoldering around the catalytic converter. In the mean time don't park on grass as it will or could start a fire.
