Is there any benefit in running the JET over the cheap-o?

cant answer that bro, but I did read on the other boards is that you have to watch out for the fitment and also some of them doesnt have a little check valve (bleeder) built on them. Heres a pic of the stock one (left) and the jet. It should look similar when your buying. Hope it helps

Am I missing something? I read a lot about people not wanting the 180 t-stat in the winter. If it is working correctly, the engine will warm up the same no matter if there is a 180 or 280 stat in it. It's just a matter of how hot it will get before it opens. I can't see anyone seeing any differences in heating capabilities between 180 and stock.

The Autozone p/n 4128 fits perfectly. It is made by Motorad which is the same company that makes the Jet thermostats...so I'm told. Oh and it's only $15!

I swaped mine out this moring in about 15 mins. The coolant that I wasn't able to catch I replaced with a bottle of Water Wetter and a little bit of water. I'll be using 190 and 200 for the low/high speed fan settings. The Autozone 4128 t-state doesn't come with a new rubber o-ring so you need to reuse your stock one. That's about it. Pretty simple mod.

can someone please explain this to me? what is the advantage of changing t-stats... and is it a good idea in OK where it can get 110 in the summer...

I live in OKC and had the same question. Is it okay, with the proper fan setting in 110* weather?

no problem.

if you guys are still running the belt driven fan there is no need to change your elec fan settings. this helps with heatsoak even more if you live in really hot areas like OK.

Ok, WTF? I installed a 180 t-stat two months ago, everything ran great until yesterday. I started the engine, let it idle for about 2 mins., then I get a check engine light? Luckily I have a friend with an OBD scanner, and it threw a code that said "coolant temp too low, 180 degrees"... Since that was the only code, and I had no other tell tale signs that I was having a cooling problem, I cleared the code with the scanner. Everything working fine right? Nope! Started my truck at work to come home, and wouldn't you know it I throw a code again! I'm going to check it again tomorrow at work, but I'm guessing its the same code. Any ideas? I plan on getting a DSP, and I know I'll be able to change the t-stat setting with it, but is there anything I can do in the meantime?
