Apologies for the repeat. (Heater)

I know that this topic has been covered. I just cant seem to find the right answer for me when looking for it. So I figured since Jeep drivers tend to be helpful people, I'd ask and this way all insights and tip will be easy for me to find.

So when I bought my TJ, it needed a blower motor, Check. Done. So she blows great. Problem is she blows warm-ish only. The temp gauge reads about 100(1/3 of the dial). It gets to that temp within a mile or two. Stays at the same spot on the dial the whole time I drive it.

I was told by a Mechanic to flush the rad and heater core, I had the rad done at an oil change place that I've been using for years. My buddy works there so I trust them. They told me that the core gets flushed when the rad does. Does it? I've heard that maybe the impeller blades on the water pump have worn down. Do they? Can this be diagnosed without removing it? It's been a couple of weeks since I checked the coolant level, but it stayed consistent all winter. No puddles under my rig.

I would appreciate any and all input here, I drove topless today and loved every minute of it. I was freezing the whole time. So I'd love it if I could find a way to go topless with hyperthermia. Thanks in advance to anyone who replies.

Try changing your thermostat. It sounds like you might have one that's stuck open, or the wrong temp thermostat. The 4.0 should have a 195 (F) thermostat.
