So I had some overheating/riding hot issues that I was dealing with that i just fixed(knock on wood). The jeep kept wanting to stay above 210 temp wise and I did not feel comfortable with where the temp was riding. I couldnt remember what thermostat i put in it a while back so I pulled it apart. Once pulled apart i found out it was a 180 degree. I went to store and bought a 195 and threw that in. As you can tell im trying to bring this thing back to stock components. BTW I threw my stock mechanical fan back in and it had no effect on it, and it actually got a little bit hotter. Anyways, I threw that 195 in and drove it. It overheated, 3 times. I brought it home and started checking stuff out, then called my dad to give me a second opinion. After a few little tests I figured it out with some help of coarse. When I turned my heater on full blast, the temp would drop to just below 210. What that told me was the radiator is not doing its job. So i bought a all aluminum 2-row radiator off ebay for a decent price and lifetime warranty. No its not a champion, I didnt have the cash for that. I cant complain though, its got lifetime warranty and it arrived at my house really quick. Here are some pics.
Low and behold it solved the overheating/riding hot issue!!! thank you jeep gods. (knock on wood)
temp stays right before 210 or right on it now even with AC full blast. If I haul a$$ on the highway it gets alittle warmer but never leaves the 210 white dot.
