You should always bench bleed the master cylinder before installing it.

The master cylinder , when mounted in the truck , is positioned at an angle that traps an air bubble.
The air bubble will NOT come out with conventional bleeding.
Turn a half empty soda pop bottle upside down. How would you get more liquid in the bottle and all the air out with it in that position ?
