Did it truly overheat, or is it just spitting radiator fluid out the
cap? I have the same truck, and recently the radiator cap failed.
Truck hadn't started overheating yet, but the radiator was quite low by
the time I discovered the problem (noticed dripping).
Replaced the cap, and all is well.

list of things it could be.....
bad Radiator cap
clogged radiator or a/c condensor fins
blown head gasket
bad fan clutch
bad water pump
improper mix of coolant to water (should be 50 - 50 mix)
i'd start with a pressure test of the system (including the cap) a cap and
or the thermostat would be prime suspects and are the cheapest.
