There should not have been any voltage going to the lamp, unless the lamp was turned on. If the lamp was off, you should not have blown a fuse. Which lamp were you removing? If the wiring in the truck is screwy somehow (where perhaps the negative voltage is switched and the positive is always hot to the lamps) then just remove the fuse prior to changing lamps.

Well that explains why you blew the fuse If you don't need the lamp then you could just disconnect and tape up the wires that feed it. If you do need the lamp, then buy the parts you need to replace, pull the fuse first, and then work on it. Automotive wiring can be a real pain,...
