One thing I've noticed with my TJ is I feel that its running a little on the Hot side... Stock 4.0, 33" tires, relatively flat road surfaces. Ambient temps anywhere from 60-100 degrees.
Around town (without the AC on) it runs anywhere from 200-210 deg.
On the freeway it runs right about 195-200 deg.
I've owned several cars and heat was something I've always kept a close eye on. Is this normal? I would understand if the vehicle isn't getting enough air travel through the grill or it's clogged but I just placed a new water pump and thermostat and I dont beat on it. This rated on normal driving, no towing, no large hills.
Is there something I'm missing? Is it supposed to run at this temp? Can she run cooler? I feel it should be in the 170-180 range.
Thanks in advance.
