Agreed, coolant will be the key to it. If its using coolant, has coolant in the oil, or oil in the coolant, something pretty bad is wrong. From bad head gaskets, bad oil cooler, or cavitation.
If its not using coolant, then your trucks timing is running retarted. You have to loosen the three bolts on the IP (the ones holding the IP to the cover, the one on the bottom is the hardest). And rotate the pump towards the passenger side. A little bit goes a long way. Most recommend going less than a dimes width at a time. That should help with the white smoke if it isnt coolant.
