Finally got that sob fan/clutch off (boy was that a pain) put a new clutch on and still have the same problem.
Jeep runs at the right temp at slow speeds, even on a 3hr trail run I did the other weekend in 90 degree heat.
Get on the road running 50mph temp will go about 1/8 past 210 and at 70mph will go just over 1/4 past.
Have never seen this problem. The clutch had play so figured simple fix, of course not.
May try water pump next.

check radiator hoses and all. make sure you dont have coolant leaking. busted upper hose on mine after i got it. check before it way over heats.made that mistake already.

So just like many others im sure i had an overheating issue for a while and if the wj sat still in one place for too long it would slowly heat up becuase the electric fan wouldnt work, i finally went and bought a new electric fan and relay and it started to work.... once in a while. I was completly lost after tons of research on this! so im just staring at the set up and i notice that the plug that goes from the jeep directly into the fan (the plastic connector) was messed up on the inside! so i get a new connector, rewire it and bam! a stupid little $20 peice of plastic is all it took, i suggest anyone with an overheating problem CHECKS THIS. a simple fix. so happy now

It's a Jeep, it's not supposed to work right all the time.

Washed it earlier this afternoon, only to find out that we have an 85% chance of storms tonight... Tomorrow, its an oil change, possibly new breaks and new air filter.
