Unfortunately, if you're going to fix that radiator, the whole tank will have to be replaced. It was a common problem on those trucks. Any radiator shop can replace the tank for you, but you will be money ahead just to buy a new radiator for it. Be sure to shop around because prices can vary greatly. I've bought some radiators from e-bay.
Good Luck and God BlessRemember that if you're not part of the solution, then you're part of the problem!

Yup. New radiator is the solution. This will give you a warranty and some piece of mind. It can be installed in a morning by most DIYERs2010 Chevy Silverado Z71 ext cab.4x4

JB Weld is good for limping home (I keep some in my truck for this) but should not be considered a permanent fix. As the others have said, poney up for a new radiator...
