Dtimekw is on a distinguished road

I probably should have mentioned what I have found and am working on. It started after replacing all of the hoses. I didn't check heat for about 3 weeks after. Before doing the hoses, cab temp at the vent and at idle was ~140*. Now, it is 110* and gets to 120* with the engine revving up. I flushed/backflushed the heater core when I did the hoses and replaced the t-stat as well. As of right now, I have the truck on a pretty good incline. I ran it like this for almost an hour the help "burp" it. About every 10 minutes, I would blip the throttle to see if I can hear the air bubbles which I can. At 8 MPG, I decided to leave it overnight on the hill with the rad topped off and the cap off. I'll see what it looks like in the morning. Any other ideas?
