I have a 1999 xj 2door 4x4 stock 60,000 miles on a I6. It runs at 208 or 209 degrees from day 1. If I go on a long trip or wheelin in the hills it will go to 210 to 213. Should I put in a new 180 degree Thermostat from 4wd.com or stay with the stock one? Is it ok for the jeep to run this hot? I have a 1999 2x2 and it runs the same from day 1. Both bought new.

typically only when it stops opening up. They can last for years. I have replaced them before just because I was replacing a busted hose right there and thought I would go ahead & replace it for the hell of it.

210 might be normal but that doesn't necessarily mean it's best.

If six-cylinder Jeeps caught fire everytime people drove them it might be considered "normal" but it wouldn't be acceptable.

I put a 180-degree thermostat in my Cherokee and I'm fixing to do the same to my Wrangler.
