Back firing in the exhaust on over run sounds like excess fuel being present in the exhaust. If there is unburned fuel in the exhaust then the catalytic converter works exceptionally hard causing it to smell badly and will eventually damage the catalytic converter. Have the Pickup checked out as soon as possible.
