First check your oil, and change it if necessary. Low oil will cause the lifters to tap. I wouild recommend adding some high milage oil treatment, like Slick 50. If your oil is good and full, the lifters may be damaged. You can take a quart of transmission fluid or diesel fuel to the gasoline. It will cause it to smoke a little but it may free up sticky lifters. If that doesn't work, you probably have damage to your lifters.

Tapping noice when the truck is running its sounds like tap,tap,tap,tap,tap,tap

It could be a bent valve, push-rod/s, piston slap, connecting rod bearings,bad fuel, timing, could need a tune-up,knock sensor, bad fuel, or water in fuel. You can start by looking at the vehicles repair/maintenance history, preform a dry and wet compression test,and take it from there. If I can be any more help let me know, thank you.

Probably just a hydralic lifter tapping when cold. Change the oil in it and let it warm up before taking off. Be sure and use the correct oil, 10w/30 or whatever the manual says for your climate.
