Is your fan working properly, have you tried a coolant flush, is there any leaks or antifreeze smells?

mud or dirt in the radiator if you wheel. put on a new radiator cap. for a 4.0 pretty sure its 16lbs, definitely do a coolant flush. check your hoses. when not moving the fan should be at full speed.
