I did flush the cooling system

does it get hot standing still or at highway speeds or both??

Standing still

Are you positive that the vehicle is overheating and not just a bad temp gauge saying it is overheating ? Also feel the top and bottom radiator hoses once vehicle has reached operating temp if both feel the same could just be a bad temp gauge. If bottom hose gets hot and the top hose stays lukewarm remove t- stat then reinstall hose to see if it overheats with out t-stat installed.
