It's not as common for a 6.4 to puke as it is a 6.0. What JOB is the truck?Have you had the radiator replaced?

If you run the 310 hard, you may lift the heads. If you pressure test the system you can rule out radiator, degas bottle, and cap.

Were you running the 310? Do you have the short air dam in front? You can tell if it is a Job 1 for sure by your build date.

If they just replaced the radiator the degas bottle may have been over filled also.

Like everyone else asked, what tune are you running?

It is probably your head gasket if you have coolant all under the driver side of your hood. Mine puked like crazy on only the 250 tune.

I am going to go ahead and say that you probably lifted the head since its a Job 1 truck.
