Have you done the chemical test to check for exhaust gases in the coolant? I believe you can rent the tester from autozone, or another outlet. All you have to buy is the chemical fluid. Exhaust gas will change the color of the fluid.
It is also possible the impellers on the water pump may be worn, and not pushing enough coolant.
You should also check the fan or fans are working properly.

disconnect the heat hoses going into fire wall , put hose into one with pressure and flush as it sounds like it could be bloked in the heater core,the other thing that could be the problem be the hot ,cold switch as it restricts the flow to makes the heater hoter or colder , it might need tlc or replacing as it is manaul not elec

when a vehicle gets to around 10yrs old or a high mileage the head gasket starts to fail unlike the old copper ones so seek advice from a garage who will put a pressure tester on the rad and run engine then check for a build up of excessive pressure which is a sign of a head gasket fatigue

SOURCE: My truck only runs hot
To reliably check the head gasket without costing you a cent, idle the car hot, to opperating temp. then one by one loosen the spark plugs.
It is very important that you dont take out all the spark plugs at once.
Start with cylinder 1
Loosen the sparg plug
Have a mirror nearby (one that will fit over the plug hole closely)
Remove the spark plug
and then quickly place the mirror over the spark plug hole
after 3-4 seconds quickly check on the mirror if there is any sign of moisture.
If so the head gasket is blown on that cylinder
When the head gasket blows moisture escapes into the combustion chamber wich will mist up the mirror glass.
Repeat this processe with the other cylinders

There is a fan coolant temperature sensor on the bottom of the radiator, it has an electrical connector on it, with the key on disconnect the connector, if the fans run constantly with the connector off replace this sensor.
