You did let it run quite a while with heater on full while refilling the coolant to make sure all air bled out right? Well try it again with cap off, and rev the engine slightly once in a while for a few seconds, then let it idle again. Keep doing this as long as your gauge stays in normal range, Until you can see the flow increase in the rad, about 2 or 3 times at least. You'll see it flow faster when the thermostat opens. while watching it, keep an eye for bigger size bubbles, which indicates air obviously, but they should disappear or at least get very minimal after a while. Continuous larger bubbles, may indicate a bad head gasket, or cracked/warped head, or both. Let's not go there until we try the other though. Feel your rad hoses too, (squeeze them) especially your lower one, as it could be soft & spongy, and collapsing during driving & restricting the flow to the engine. If it feels weak at all, after all you've done, I'd do them too just to be sure, if they feel weak at all. Keep us posted

Problem is most likely the water pump.Have seen several of these doing this on the 5.4L. Impeller fins were damaged on the ones that I have seen.

you may have a head gasket problem, anytime coolant comes out of the cap, theres too much pressure in the cooling system. you dont say how long it takes to do that, but a head gasket would do it right away. 1 minute or so. if the truck is hot, make sure the air going through the radiator is HOT.
