JET Thermo vs generic
 
Is there a difference? I can get a generic one from Napa for 20$ and a JET is around 40-50.. is it just the name?

I have a 12.99 one in mine...Motorad from AutoZone...and it has been fine!

I also bought the autozone 4128 t-stat. another member here just reported that they bought the Jet t-stat and after receiving it they found it is just a reboxed motorrad.

Pretty much the name.

BadHazard 09-17-2011 11:50 PM

can I get a link to one? I searched autozone and it says Duralast and it doesnt fit my 06

CHVYKLR 09-18-2011 08:28 AM

it'll fit. buy it anyway and reuse the rubber gasket around the edge of your factory t-stat.

BadHazard 09-18-2011 08:43 AM

alright cool. so if my stock gasket is shot just buy another oem one?

What should you reset your fan settings to with the 180* t-stat?

Not sure but you could start at around 185 deg F. You'll have to pay attention and monitor it and find the best spot for it as you don't want it running constantly, but don't want the engine to get too hot above the tstat temp before turning on.
