Guys,

I have read countless threads about how simply installing a lower temp thermostat will not lower your overall operating temp. Before installing the 170 degree thermostat from Roe my temp gauge would climb past middle to around 210/215. After installing the 170 and bleeding the system it sits at around 180 degrees now regardless of sitting in traffic, heat outside, etc. I don’t know if I had air bubbles in the system prior or what but the temp sits more comfortably for me now. I always drove with one eye on the road and one eye on the temp but not any more. Truck is completely stock besides the thermostat. Just trying to help anyone contemplating a 170/180 degree thermostat install. It certainly solved my issues.

Take care.
