Check the clutch bushing on the pedal first, chances are it is shot and can cause that problem. Easy visual check. If that bushing is junk you will lose an inch of play in the sytem causing it to act like a bad tranny/clutch.

If the bushing is fine, try putting the truck in 5th gear and then into reverse to see if that helps.
