Since you're wanting to change to the 180 stat, I'd recommend a fan turn on temp of 195-200 degress.

The best fan for our trucks is the black magic 180 fan setup.
It must run with a 180 stat to work properly though.

If its setup right it will only come on while sitting at a light.

What you want to do is leave your truck running.
Once the top rad hose opens up move the fan switch on the electirc fan so it turns on.
Then back it off just enuff so it stops running.
Your setup perfectly.

I ordered mine from summit racing, never had a problem with them and if you receive their emails you'll get discounts from time to time but they're online catalog is one of the best And prices are pretty good.
