1987 2.9 slowly overheats

Changed out thermostat and coolant. As near as I can tell the clutch fan is working correctly. If I run the truck w/o the a.c.it seems to be okay. If I use the a.c it begins to gradually climb. up. My question would an aftermarket fan kit do me any good, or is that just a band aid, Could the water pump be going **** up? Any help wpould be really cool
