My jeep runs nice and cool all the time at around 1/4 or even lower.
But while working it hard in the snow it climbs up quick, only takes a minute to cool right back down though.

Have two electric fans on at all times(switch)

What do you guys think I could do :dontknow:

stop driving a jeep.

but seriously, it could be because your not moving to much in the snow.. High revs, and your fan is a constant speed.

....never hurts to spend $7 on a rad cap.

.... a fountain of information I know I know haha, but it's something that is often overlooked....

Good luck!

If its cooling down real fast when u stop it might just be because its working hard in the snow

wont have anything to do w it being a stroker and larger injector's [wako] .... simply put you can make more heat than your truck can handle going slow loaded up breaking trail ... next step aluminum rad ....

maybe that water wetter stuff would help? I just saw it on the shelf, have no idea if it works or not

That was what I was thinking as well, works fine, it's only when working real hard

Mine was doing it earlier this year. I found that a flush on the rad , and recently in my heater core helped so much with my overheating!
And maybe put that clutch fan in
