is 210 degrees normal operating Temp??

Hi,
I bought a 1997 Jeep Wrangler Sport with a 4.0l engine. It has 110k miles on it. The temp guage stays in the middle at 210. Is this normal? The Radiator Fluid is green and looks fresh.

Are you sure the guage is correct? Do you have access to a infrared thermometer? one of these

I do have a infrared thermometer. Where sould I point it to get an accurate reading? Like I said the radiator fluid is clean. I was surprised for a Jeep with 110K miles on it. I went out and bought a new thermostate, fan clutch and a radiator cap. I was going to replace those tomorrow.

Thank you
