Default Thermostat? What degree° are you using?

I have a 1996 Dodge Ram 5.9L 2 wheel drive 89000 miles with towing package... although I don't tow anything. What degree thermostat is everybody running in these engines? It looks like the factory stat was 195°? I just flushed the radiator and have new hoses including the "dreaded" by-pass I'm headed for the therm' housing and would like to put a quality stat in...Thanks
UPDATE: after I wrote this I found the sticky...sorry to bother the forum with a repeat's the poll link:

You have to add ".com" after dodgeforum in the link above to get it to work
