My truck runs and sounds great, my only concern is that the temperature rises considerably when I am climbing, Idling, and under a load ( hauling, pulling my trailer). Other than that it runs great, it does make a rumbling sound as if the engine is working too hard sometimes. What could be the problem?

An engine that's running hot will cause the engine to detonate/ping like marbles being drop into an empty tin can-Try replacing the thermostat and see what happens.
