I would recommend a 16 psi rad cap. Fairly standard volume in a truck, with heavy duty cooling, should be between 3 - 5 gallons mixed coolant. This may vary some, depending on rad size, heater core, ect. It is also not a dead on spec, just what I recall from the last time I did a BBC coolant exchange.
