Anyhow, the other way is to make sure you truck good on coolant, run until the T-stat cycles a few times. Then hold the RPM at 3-3500 for 4-5 min or less if bubbles appear.
It sounds like you burped the system well.
Do you have a stock T-stat in the truck?
Ok i'll go try that today and see if i get any, lee hill has been one of my main test roads. The t-stat is stock, i believe it opens at 185
