Alright, seems like changing the thermostat is the way to go, is there a specific temperature that I should go for?

195 is the recommended stat temperature for the "vast majority" of 4.0 applications. I buy my stats directly from Jeep; well worth the extra few bucks for a reliable stat that holds a very steady temp.

...and stay away from fail safe thermostats. Unless you don't mind changing out stats at least once a year.

Alright, so I just got the new thermostat in.
Turns out that there wasn't one.
how long should until I fill the radiator back up?

No stat? Button 'er up and fill 'er up. Let it idle with the rad cap off, keeping the rad full of coolant. When coolant/air start to burp/flow out the top of rad, put a new rad cap on. Check coolant level in the rad, motor cold, next several days and add coolant as necessary.
