    Did you only hear the lifters or the low oil pressure warning came on also?
    I'd test the oil pressure with a mechanical pressure tester to see what's the actual pressure. If the engine has sludge, carbon deposit and gunk, the screen on the oil pick up tube could be restricted, of course it could also have internal problem and the engine might needs to be rebuild or replaced.

    Tow your truck to a shop and have them determine where the oil is coming from. Any work recently done to your truck?

    here are some shops:
