Winterfronts help you get head in the cab?!? Awesome, screw mpg's! Sorry bud, I had to!

I just wanted to give everyone a heads up what solved my problem. I swapped out the Thermostats in my truck and it immediately held 181 degrees so that might be the place to start if you are having trouble with your operating temps.

Might be a good thing for me too, ever since I put on my big oil cooler that doesnt have a thermostat, I cruise around with 170* coolant temps, and have seen 155* coolant putting around when its 45-50 outside. Trans was 120ish, oil was around 160* and coolant is about the same.

Where mine is running now, don't matter if it's idling, driving, or hauling. Going to change out the thermostat

Well kind of. The 185 degree thermostat was opening prematurely when I tested it.

Yep. It fixed it. I bought Stant thermostats from Advanced Auto Parts. The seal was already on the thermostat so I didn't need to buy new seals.
