Question about 2004 Dodge Ram 1500
I had a 2002 Dodge Ram doing the same thing when the thermostat failed to open and it ran hot. This engine having the aluminum heads blew the the head gasket on the left.side. This was a 4.7 liter engine. I had to pull engine down and had the heads reworked. My advice is to let a professional look at this as this is not a good home project unless you have all the tools and information to do this.

I would defiantly check the water pump, can you feel pressure in the rad lines? when you changed the rad and thermostat out, did you run your vehicle without the rad cap for awhile to ensure that there was no air locks within the system?
Water pump is located at the front of the engine behind the fan.
Good Luck! hope this helps.
