How screwed am I!?

Okay so after I got done replacing my stand pipes and dummy plugs I took the truck out for a quick spin and as I was coming back up the hill my radiator hose on the passenger side came off and for about half a mile I lost all my coolant, the fan kicked on and I shut the truck off ASAP, it was still coming out of the hose after it was off till it all was gone, is anything going to be hurt!?

As long as you shut it down right away, you should be fine.

Nah, don't sweat it. Tighten up the clamp, fill it up with coolant and drive that beast.

Yeah you should be alright as long as you didn't continue to run the truck after all the coolant drained. Did you get your stc fitting and everything done on it now?

Bad thing with temp gauges is you have to have a medium for them to measure in this case water. If it drains quickly like in your case the sensor is not immersed and will no longer work correctly cause the air around it allows to much heat to be pulled away from the sensor. Good heads up on what happened and getting it shut down.
