I have seen it happen before, it is usually the result of the jam nut being left loose during the last alignment. To fix it you will need a new inner tie-rod end and a new outer tie-rod end. The inner tie-rod requires a special tool for easy removal, but I have gotten them off with some inventive measures with a crescent or pipe wrench before. Whatever you do DO NOT DRIVE your truck as it is, the steering could come apart at any time. and after the parts are installed it needs to go STRAIGHT to a REPUTABLE alignment shop so it doesn't kill your tires. Hope this helps and isn't too late!!
