zj over heating

Okay so I have a 1996 jeep grand Cherokee Laredo and I lost all heat in the middle of winter...fantastic. I decided to replace the thermostat out of some misconstrued hope that even though my car Isn't over heating it wasn't allowing enough fluid to get through to make it to the heatercore.

No heat is now the least of my problems. Since I have done this my zj has reached 260 degrees Fahrenheit so I immediately turned it off and am borrowing a car to use temporarily does anyone have any helpful tips on how to solve this, how I may have installed it improperly or some common ways a thermostat maybe improperly installed? I can assure you that it is not in there backwards.
Any input would be greatly appreciated thank you.
