run your truck for a while, like going to or from work, feel the top radiator hose, if its hot, then its not likely the thermostat, then feel the hoses going to & from the heater, it may be the Heater Valve Control Valve is not opening & allowing the water to enter the heater, its usually located in the hose that goes from the water pump to the heater core, if it doesn't open & close properly, that is your problem.
it looks something like this
