Default Coolant resivor/Tank??

I just replaced my radiator cap today, fired the truck up. And after turning I have a pinhole leak causing bubbles from the fill neck where the cap screws on.

I am looking to find a replacement but evidently I have no idea what this is actually called. its the tank with the pink antifreeze. Any help?

The correct name is "Degas bottle". The dealer is the only place I have found for a new one. Its not that expensive, like $50 or so. Mine started doing the same thing after replacing my radiator, I just dont have the heart to waste the extra $20 in coolant to change it yet.
