So who here has a 2013 and runs a 180 T-stat?? I have to say the points by RadioFlyer makes total sense, I am not saying other points stated are not valid, on the other hand until someone chimes in with a 2013, I am still a little reluctant, I have a long trip in about a week towing our TT, its 26 ft and weighs in at about 5400 lbs loaded, so its well within towing capacity of my truck. I may have a chance mid-trip to change it out the thermostat. I may just do that for comparison reasons, or I may just look into the oil cooler mod that I think Outdoorsman added to his truck with very good real world results, I just don't understand why the oil and water run so much hotter on these trucks, my 2010 ran a lot cooler.
