Unhappy Help

Hey everyone I just turned 128,000 miles and my jeep is overheating It was boiling over into the tank but I replaced the rad cap and it releases pressure occasionally but now it cracked the top of the Rad and singed the A/C sticker im going to need a new Rad and im sure a new thermostat but please tell me if im wrong oh btw my temp gauge doesn't go past 214 even when the coolent is boiling.

2nd issue

so when I drove off today I noticed that my oil pressure is higher than normal almost hit 80 and normally runs about 60 high (I run thicker oil in the summer since im in AZ) but 80 is way high. is it just the sending unit?

I appreciate any feedback and im not scared of putting good parts in my jeep it needs to last longer than shorter.

Seems weird it's boiling over but temp gauge is not that high.
1. Check to see how fast you fan is spinning.
2. Check to see if all your hoses coming from rad are getting hot.
3. Change thermostat.
Obviously you need a new one being its cracked. Also, have you been mudding or had the front end submerged in water lately?

thermostat locked up. My old bronco did the same thing. Once it locked up the water pump built to much pressure and cracked the radiator.
