"The coolant surge tank is divided into two sides. The pressurized side
(engine side) should be completely full, while the non-pressurized side
(fender side) will be significantly lower, depending on the operating
temperature. "

If you overfill, it will do no harm to the truck -- but it will push some out the overflow.

"The vehicle must be on a level surface. When the engine is cold, the coolant level should be at or above the MIN mark".

The MAX line is 'above' the min line.

If I was topping it up, I'd be adding to, or just above, the MAX line rather than just above the MIN line.
