maybe overheating maybe not

hello im new here. i have a 2005 f250 super duty with a 6.0. im not sure what is wrong with it. after driving it for a while the temp gauge starts to go up. the longer i drive the higher it goes. i pulled off the road and shot the front of the heads with an IR and it showed 210 degrees. radiator was showing 193 at the inlet. does anyone have the same problem or can anyone help

192 is what the stock thermostat is rated for. 210 isn't bad for pulling grade or towing but if the truck is empty and on flat ground, that's getting a little warm. Could be a waterpump issue creeping up on you.

The dash temp gauges aren't very useful. If you plan on having your truck for awhile I would get a decent gauge for it.

I second that 210 isn't bad for towing. I see 196-200 when empty freeway driving.

Well the temp gauge is in the red but water temp is 190 at the radiator inlet. I know the fans work i can hear it come on. it cycles normally. i was wondering if it maybe a faulty temp sensor or the gauge. what do yall think?

It is very possible that you have a bad sensor.
