01 WJ 4.0 overheating problem!

Sooooo here's the scoop. My jeep doesn't overheat while running, it only does when I shut it off then turn it back on within 5-10 minutes. I've placed my fan relay and it does kick on right around 210, but when my engine is off the fan stops regardless of the temperature. I feel like the fan should stay on for 5ish minutes after shuttin off since engines get hotter before they cool back down? Also the radiator has been flushed and a new thermostat has also been installed.
Any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated!

how hot does it get?
