Default Lifter noise

If you are using Fram filters that would account for some of the noise. I would try a thinner oil and if that don't work........live with it or start replacing lifters. I am assuming you have a Lima 2.3 or 2.5 since you gave no info about your truck.

Try using valve medic chemical in a parts store before your next oil change.
