I just fixed a 6.5 for a friend that was constantly doing the same thing. The kit from SSdiesel is a nice one with the duramax fan dual t-stats and higher flow water pump you'll never come close to getting hot again... Unless you have a head problem such as cracked heads or blown head gaskets but to check for that you can pressure test your cooling system or let your truck get up to temp and with the coolant fill cap off see if you have bubbles in your resivior or if you have excess pressure if you hold your hand over the cap hole and remove it.
