Advice needed

I just purchased the trail dash two and I have a cold air intake but I find my heat gauge around 230 and my air intake around 130 is that normal

A hair shorter than the halfway mark on the stock gauge. Not many people would know, because the gauge cluster in the JK is pretty poopy. As for the air intake, it's likely fetching warmer air from around the engine too, so that I'm not sure on.

230 is too warm. Mine sometimes runs there too. Check see if your radiator is clogged, and change your thermostat. After that IDK.

You may be able to change the settings for the fan, on my '11 I lowered mine and even on a 100* day crawling in the mountains it never got over about 210*

Gotcha. Not sure if thats my issue since at idle and low speeds I don't have an issue but If I find more reasons to get one I'll be doing that. Thanks.
