My 02 Tundra started over heating while I was pulling a load. No dash light or sensor came on. I have thus far installed new water pump (because it was due to change anyway) OEM thermostat, OEM clutch fan, after market radiator. I installed the radiator about 6 months prior to having this issue. I let it idle for at least 30 mins the other day with no issues. Today I drive it for about 15 mins and the gauge starts to rise. I have been fighting this issue for about a month now. What else could it be. Still no sensor light.

You could get a cheap laser temperature gauges and get a baseline reading under normal conditions on different parts of the engine. Then when it says its overheating, park take measurements again.

No raising front is required, no burbing, very simple system. Once you fill it, run truck until you see temp gauge rise and then it will drop a little, then let it cool and top it off. Heater on. I hate to say it, but sounds like head gasket, especially if you replaced, WP and radiator. I hope it is not, it' not common, so do make sure all lines are clear, and nothing blocking. Flush system if you have to. 1% chance gauge is bad.
