This truck has a lot of black smoke comming from the exhaust when you rev it up or just going down the road. If you could give me some pointers on where to start diagnosing this that would be great.
Do you
have the same problem?

Most common issue is the injectors? How old are they and when did you have them serviced last?

If the injector timing is off, that will cause smoke as well.

Also, fuel quality is another factor. Old, bad low cetane fuel will do the same thing.

The driver, no, the chip should not effect it. Is this a turbo? If it is, there is another reason it may smoke as the seals may be bad and oil may be going out the turbo into the exhaust.

Lift pump just supplies fuel to the injector pump. It sounds like you have injector issues.
