Thermostat and wheel spacers

Two questions. 1- i have a 94 with the 4.0, what size thermostat is supposed to be in it. Mine only shows to get up to about 160 or so and 2- are 1inch wheel spacers ok to run. Dont bash me too bad i am not new to the garage, i work on everything. I feel like i should know but i dont. My famous words right before i mess something up-" if they didnt want me in it they should have welded it shut instead of bolting it". Thanks for the help

Recommended thermostat is a 195 degree thermostat a 180 thermostat wont let the computer go into closed loop. That can cause bad fuel economy and drivability issues. If your state does emission testing it may fail testing also.
