    Ok, we need a bit more info. How high do the RPMs stay. Does your truck have Cruise Control?
    If so there could be a possibility of the cruise control somehow kicking on and possibly keeping the rpms up.

    If youve changed the IAC it could possibly be the Throttle Position sensor.
    Or there could be a possibility of your throttle cable just sticking.

    Um it wont hurt the engine, really just may hurt your clutch more.

    **** happens all the time. pretty sure its just the throttle cable sticking, it also happens more when the heat/ac is on.

    Like Miller said, check your throttle cable, see if it is sticking or just replace it
