If that doesn't work try replacing your thermostat.

If that doesn't work try replacing the water pump

If that doesn't work you may need a new heater core

I can't see that as the probable cause because supposedly his Jeep is getting up to temp.

I had the same problem and it was my thermostat. Anyway, it's such a cheap fix and a good starting point you may as well switch it out.

it seems to me that would increase air flow but not air temp, so you would just have more cool air coming in

Come go for a ride and I'll be glad to demonstrate the difference between what you perceive incorrectly as "control" and what control actually is.

Pick a different reason because that one is both lame and stupid to perpetuate.

Not needed, that is only for airflow...and even then it is useless.
