Question about 1992 Toyota Pickup
Could be that,And its easy and cheep to do ( my dad always told me growing up to always start with the easiest and cheapest things first.and work your way up from there.), but when thermostats go bad they either stick open or shut,if it sticks open, that can cause it to run hot because it don't slow the fluid down enough to get cooled down in the radiator before going back to the engine...if it gets stuck shut than that's when you blow a hose because the pressure builds up and cant go anywhere...if the thermostat dont fix it your radiator might be getting clogged,which will cause them to overheat also,so your system might need flushed to remove the gunk....but you are on the right track start with the thermostat and if it still gets hot, then flush your system...good luck. yz-maniac

Might be your thermostat or it could be your water pump....Is it getting hot soon after you start it or does it have to run for a bit???? Check waterpump by leaving your radiator cap off (when the motor is cold), and start your truck. Let it run for a bit and look in the filler neck of your radiator and look to see coolant moving around. Sometimes, also the waterpump will give off a howling sound or will sound rough. Also wouldn't hurt to replace radiator cap.
