you have no right to the truck. However, if you sue the employer and win, it is possible that you could ultimately seize the truck by court order or force the employer to sell it to satisfy the judgment. If the employer asks for the vehicle back,you must give it back. Otherwise, your refusal to give it back could be considered theft. The good news is that the Texas Workforce Commission should be able to get your the money you are owed.
