I have a 2000 TJ 4.0 with 36,000 miles. The radiator started to leak so I replaced it with a DSF 3 tube 1 13/16 wide all metal radiator. I replaced the coolant, thermastat, coolant sending unit, both hoses and added a transcooler. I tow a small trailer and have never had the temperature up to the right side of the 0 on the 210 of the guage. The motor now runs slightly higher than the middle of the 210 on the street and it runs just to the right of the 0 of the 210 on the freeway without the trailer. I had the radiator checked for exhaust gases from a blown head gasket, and there were none. Any suggestions? Crying or Very sad

Even if the new tstat is the same temp, it may not open at exactly the same time as the old part. By coolant sending unit, do you mean the water pump? If the trans cooler is a seperate unit, it might not be located properly on the front of the radiator. When did you replace these parts?
