trying to keep cool

Im not new to jeeps, im reluctantly about to retire my 300,000 mile 97 cherokee, and have moved into a 2000 TJ that i just bought. after i replaced the radiator in my cherokee, operating temperatures stayed right about 195 all day long, my TJ is running 210 all the time, curious what i should expect to see in one of these, or if a radiator upgrade is a smart move.

210 is the correct temp for a 2000 4.0 Tj. I upgraded my radiator when it started to weap fluid at the seams.

210 is a the correct temp. They put a hot t stat in to help with emissions on the 4.0
