You could paint clean edges lol take a sanding block and grind the letters with a flat edge much easier then trying to get a decal made

Yeah. It's always ran from 199-204. But I'd never seen it get to 212... Cool overcast day and normal highway driving. Not sure what's up. I'll have a shop look at it this week. Just passed 89k miles so I should probably get the water pump and timing belt changed anyway.

So this is high speed overheating? You might have a weak hose (big one) that is collapsing or your thermostat may be toast.

That happened to me on my old truck. Driving like 50 for 175 miles with the heater on full in the middle of a nasty summer heatwave. Turned out a weak main top hose was the culprit.

Hmmm interesting. The top radiator hose did seen unusually easy to pinch lol. Maybe that's it. And temperature wise it's like 55-65 here right now.

My truck gets to 212 while idling at a light on a 90+ day but drops back to 194 when I start driving. Is that "normal"? It's also supercharged and I've heard that makes them run alittle hot.

Ya usually it stats low but when I'm idling for long periods and then the fan kicks on and it goes down, how would I go about changing the stat?

^What he said.

TRD sells a 160* thermostat. It's pretty easy to change, right off the upper radiator hose. Part number is PTR04-35050

It should allow the water to start flowing sooner so it will cool sooner then waiting until it gets really hot. It helps out.

FINALLY finished all the grinding where the brackets were cut off on my rear fj80 axle. Now I just have to blast the rest of the rust off and order a bunch of parts so I can swap it in!
