Re: 180 degree T-stat

If I remember correctly....I don't think my fan has any kinda wires running to it...just high pressure pipes...I might be wrong...I haven't looked at it for a while...

Re: 180 degree T-stat

After reading this thread again, half of the people on this site have these software tuners for their jeeps. For people that have the 180 therms and a tune, why dont you just adjust the fan control to 180 degrees? Seems pretty logical, then you all keep the motor at 180 degrees. Just thinking out loud here.

Re: 180 degree T-stat

The 5.7 doesn't have an electric fan.. we have the hydralic fan and I believe that setting is not offered in the tuner (diablo) for that r3ason.

Re: 180 degree T-stat

I bought a Jet 180* thermostat more than a month ago. I live in NW Ohio and the average high temperature during the winter months is around 30*. My Jeep starts to blow warm air within 2-3 minutes of running now. How long should I expect it to take if I install the 180* thermostat.

Re: 180 degree T-stat

true but what about the motor never reaching closed loop and always trying to find it by dumping more and more fuel in.

Re: 180 degree T-stat

I have a K&N intake, Magnaflow muffler, planning to get a superchip this spring, do you guys think a 180 t-stat would be a good mod along with these? I plan to do a few track runs during the summer too but its also my daily driver and I live in PA which has cold winters. Oh and how hard is it to swap on WK 4.7's?

Get the 180 t-stat. They are set up now so that they take no longer to warm up to temp than a stock stat. I am from NJ and had no issues with the 180 in the wintertime.

The stat on the WK will be in the same place as the WJ...it was not the funnest install I've done. Doable, but it takes finesse.
