Re: Is 220-235 too hot for the 2.8 V-6?
I've only had a 4.3, but it seems to me that 220 is OK, but up to 235 is too much, even with the AC on. And as open as a Jeep is, I can't see how adding vents is going to dramatically reduce that.
I would check to see what kind of thermostat your running and maybe tone it down a bit.
Then might consider getting either a bigger radiator, or putting in an auxillary fan.
Then again, sitting still with the AC on is going to move the temp up no matter what you do. Just make sure that it cools down to normal op temp when the Jeep is moving!
