New winch = TJ Running Hot

Recently, I installed a HS9500I on my TJ with a Tomken mounting plate. Needless to say it blocked quite a bit of the radiator air flow. I just came back from a camping trip traveling through Western Montana and Northern Idaho where the temp was in the low 90's. The Jeep was running better than 210 on the guage much of the time. I think that the stock thermostat is 195 degree. If I went with a 180 degree will that cure the problem if it is a problem? I just don' want it to run that high. I also don't want to go to low since I live in the Northwest and we have winters. I like the heater to work. Have any of you had this experiance? Thanks for the info. Rick
