seppie10 is on a distinguished road

Well I have a 10 ram 1500 quad 4x4 3.92 rear and a 6.5x13 aluminum trailer full of pallets at about 3000 lbs gross weight running up and down mtns for 125 miles straight. 11 mpg and temps for rad were 225 and temps for oil were 225 and temps for trans 179 degrees. My personal opinion was a lil to warm and wonder why. 12,000 miles on this truck and 80 degrees outside and by the time we got there it was 55 degrees and the temps never fell. I set the cruise for 64 mph and never a saw a change. I was wondering on changing my thermostat to the 180 would help i guess it wouldn't hurt.
