open the bleeder w/o pressing the pedal down. let it gravity bleed. then do the pedal down again, holding it there, open the bleeder and fluid will squirt. watch your eyes. gravity bleed again.
now go back into the truck and push the pedal. it may be somewhat soft at first, but will eventually self bleed itself as designed(but poorly). Or to accelerate this, pump the pedal several times like crazy. Had to do that to two of my buddy's totally dry systems(auto to manual swaps)
If that fails and never gets better, start considering replcing that slave cylinder.
