Factory temp gauge

I just resided my entire jeep and all my gauges work pretty good... My temp gauge never worked before I rewired it, now that it works it reads about 3/4 the up to hot! My question is what's a normal reading on the stock gauge??? It seams a little to hot right now!

Could I get a 160 degree thermostat to help cool it down?

not sure where temp sender is on a 6 but I'm running stock gauge and Autometer electric and both senders are located up by thermo housing, the hottest place in the system. I spent a lot of work and coin on making it run max 190-195 at the hosing in the afternoon. .
Dude, we're in S. Tx. ...it's HOT!
