Where to buy 180 t-stat?
 
Where did you all pick it up? I found a few online just wondering what you thought. Any chance there is a local parts house that carries it?

I checker there and auto zone they only have 195s. Seems like the 4.7 is harder to find a stat for.

omg!!this is so much of a coincidence!!!I literally logged in to post the exact same question n i come across this one(jeepgarage surprises u in mysterious ways) :eek: ..I am looking for a t180 thermostat as well and I would really appreciate if someone would post a link or two selling a good 180 thermostat..:)

>On a side note,I have read that a 195 thermostat starts working when the engine temp reaches 195.By the time the wax melts and pushes the pin to regulate the flow of coolant,the engine temp is already 200+ and that's where it will be maintained.
So, if I use a 180 tstat,the operating temp should be close to 190;which i believe to be optimal as the standard operating temp should be around 195 and that's the temp the engineers must have conducted their tests at.This also explains why Chrysler selected 195 instead of 180.My question:-Am I thinking in the right direction in selecting 180 tstat?I have BBK throttle body,K&N,cat-back n plan to run 91 octane performance using superchips in my 4.7 WJ.

Disclaimer:I live in Michigan.So, is it good to go for 180 tstat when u live in a cold place?:D
