I was wondering about that, mine already runs a bit on the cool side and I have hood vents as well. We'll see how it goes, I hope it doesnt become an issue.

Hmmm... See if you can get your hands on an IR temp gun. Shoot the t-stat housing with the Jeep running and fully warmed (upper rad hose should be warm) and see if it matches the gauge.

If the t-stat is working properly, unless you're managing to pull an insane amount of heat out of the coolant via the heater core, it shouldn't be possible to over-cool the engine.

The jeep will run at the temp of the thermostat correct? I wouldnt think it would get much cooler than what the thermostat was rated for.. Right..?

That's how it's supposed to work. A 195* t-stat, for example, should stat to open at 195*. It'll be fully open by 210 - 215*. So the Jeep shouldn't run below 195*, and given enough cooling capacity, should never exceed 210 - 215*.

It should run around 195 to 200 depending on the stat that you have. If it gets any cooler than that then your stat will close and it could cause your pcm to get false readings.

Ya this is what I always tell people. No idea why this is happening to me yet... lol. I also have an aftermarket trans cooler on instead of the one in the radiator. I need to check and make sure I'm not just dealing with some air stuck by the temp sensor.

I have stock everything and live at 6500 ft on the Navajo Rez. 20+ mi dirt road in every direction. Mud, snow, driving off-road, down into washes, etc, I haven't gotten stuck, ever. I feel like I can't get stuck. I have all-terrain cheap tires on it for now.

The videos of people creeping along TRAILS at 2 mph are cute.
