This is most likely the heater core. You'll see the anti-freeze leak sometimes outside the truck because some heater boxes have a drain tube for this reason. Of course, it could possibly be a loose heater hose connection or a leaking 'diverter or bypass valve'. Most often it is the heater core though. Pay extra attention to your coolant level until it's repaired, so as not to run low on coolant and overheat your engine.
Most heater cores can be replaced with just basic mechanical knowledge and tools. Click here for a step-by-step video of how to go about it. Good luck!

You need to look closely at the hose connections, freeze plugs, and the water pump. Water pumps are designed so that when the shaft bearing wears out, they leak from a small hole under the pulley shaft. Sometimes they will only leak while the engine is running. Freeze plugs can rust through causing a leak usually from the side of the engine. Hoses can leak from anywhere. You'll probably have to get under the engine to narrow down the possibilities. You may also want to rent a tool to pressurize the cooling system. That might help you to see where the leak is coming from. If you've never changed a water pump or a freeze plug before, you might be better off taking it to a professional. If it's just a hose, you could probably do that yourself. I hope this was helpful. Thanks.

Probably a water pump seal unfortunately. Pressurize the system, with the engine off, use a mirror to look under the water pump pulley to see if any fluid is dripping from the water pump seal weep hole.
If it is, change the water pump.
Good luck, let me know.

radiators have either a plastic or metal "tanks" at either end of the cores(the fins). Plastic is cheaper and most automakers go with that first until they find later that they should have gone with metal, which apparently is the case in your situation.
