Well my issue is at the top of the hill I park an idle and it climbs. I don't over heat but it climbs

No more issues. My suspicion is that the LR cooling system can handle the slow speeds in low range at 3000 RPM for a short period (like climbing a tough obstacle) but when you're chugging up a steep and long hill like this, you're going to overheat.

I've adjusted my driving style and run higher gears on the hills and no longer have any problems.
This shouldn't matter at all...and you shouldn't have to adjust driving style to avoid issues. I run 5.13 gearing and offroad - even in the extreme heat of summer - my temp never climbs. Never. And I'll run Rausch Creek or other trails all day long, 5-8 hours and be in 1st-2nd most of the time. Given that, I don't think Barry's truck should be overheating while he's going up a small climb to get an Orange Mocha Frappacino (sorry buddy : ).
