Drain all the coolant from the truck via the pet**** on the drivers side (takes forever) or just drop the lower radiator hose on the passenger side (very quick but messy). Pour in distilled water or tap water (whole other debate) till full. Drive truck and get it up to temp. Come back, drop fluid. Fill with water again. Do this a couple times till you get pure water with no coolant when you drain the coolant. After the last coolant drain, take the total system coolant capacity and divide by two (Think it comes to 13.5-13.75 qts). Dump in the divided amount worth of coolant then top the rest off with water. You will have a perfect 50/50 mix.
