What code are you getting, P0306? If so, then you're correct, it is a misfire on cylinder 6 and that makes it a bit easier when it's isolated to one specific cylinder. Keep in mind, there are a couple things that can cause a misfire, plugs/wires/coil, leaky fuel injector, vacuum leak to that cylinder etc. You might try swapping the coil from that cylinder with one on the opposite bank. If the problem stays the same, you know it is a problem with cylinder 6. If the problem follows the coil, then you'll know what needs replaced. Start simple, it's cheaper. Not sure what year truck you have but the concept should be the same.
