Yes, I know. I just bought the truck and it has 180,000+ miles on it (I purchased it from the original owner). He assured me the thermo was original. So I figure it could use a new thermo anyways.

If you grab the upper rad hose after the truck has ran for about 10-15 mins, the hose if hot. Thoughts?
