Not sure about the 4th gens, but shouldn't be any more difficult than on anything else. Seems odd to me that your fluid is black being as your truck is that new but you can do it the old fashioned way with two people, one pumping and holding the brake while the other drains the fluid at the bleeder screw. A friend of mine prefers the gravity bleed method where you just drain the fluid at each wheel and refill as you go. He told me he prefers doing it that way because, in his mind, pumping the brake introduces just as much air into the system as you're trying to get out. I've never tried it but I will say he had one heck of a pedal when he was done. Just make sure you're using the correct brake fluid and keep checking the master cylinder as you go.
