White smoke could be coolant. Might have a bad injector cup(s), cracked head, or anything else that would allow coolant into the combustion chamber

if there was a cracked head or anything like that wouldnt you be able to tell by lookin at the antifreeze? it looks just fine, like brand new. I would think if it was something along those lines you would be able to tell just by the way the truck runs, it runs just fine.

Oil getting into the coolant, and burning the coolant are two different things. If you're burning it, you wont be able to tell by looking at it.
