If the thermostat is good, coolant is full, I would suspect a headgasket. Just because the oil looks good does not mean the headgasket is not leaking INTO combustion chamber. Pull the plugs and see if any have a green tint ( from antifreeze).Then I would have the engines cooling system pressure tested by a garage to see if head gasket is leaking. In my personal experience with head gaskets on Dodge cars, and from others, it is almost always the cooling fan, mine would overheat, and the fan would not come on, so I simply wired the fan direct to a toggle switch, installed an actual temp gauge and voila, it is fixed, computer is not getting the signal from the sender switch or the inblock gauge, so I wired in a switch, just have to remember to shut it off when you shut the car off or you'll kill the battery. Not something to easily forget, you can really hear the fan when the engine is shut off.
