I used a Napa #165 on my 6.1L Super Bee and no problems with that.

Can I ask why a fairly new truck already needs the thermostat replaced?

I live in south florida, I use a lower thermostat in all my vehicles. Summertime its 100+ in the shade, today its 85. Some of the posts I've read are about cooler engine temp, less wear more HP. I have an hour drive in traffic with the A/C. Cooler is better.!?
