If I was you, first I would look in between the intercooler, and radiator to see how dirty it is, I had the same problem, and the front of my radiator was filthy. I pulled the intercooler off, and then the radiator, and cleaned everything. I haven't had the problem since.

I had that happen once, with about 18.5k in tow. The truck got really hot and I had to pull over to let it cool down. Anyways, long story short, I replaced my thermostat and not a problem yet. With a heavy load, the needle will move to just the high side of the middle line. However, I haven't tried a hill that steep with a load that heavy in that kind of heat, since that incident, so I can't say for sure. But also Like Bcummins said, clean everything up really well too.

Heck look between the two for cardboard! You'll find cardboard from a prevoius owner sometimes there.

cooling issue

I am new guy, excited to get the help and know how. I have a 96 2500, built auto, straight pipe with 2 5" stacks, cold air intake, #5 plate. I have had the same problem - sprayed everything out several times, changed the coolant, replaced the fan clutch since I could never hear it kick on when the temps got hot. Temp is great untill I am pulling 10 K + on hard grades and get to the bottom of 3rd and in 2nd. It wants to redline. I still never hear the fan engage. What will it take to engage it? Should I junk it and get some electric fans if the clutch fan wont work? Any help or advice would be great.
