Coolant level?

When I bought my truck last July it had 9k on it and the radiator had been relpaced. The coolant level was a inch or so below the cold fill line and has not moved. I was wondering should I top it off or leave it alone. I don't want to risk puking but my temp is around 200 when it's 90 outside and of coarse here in Texas we will see 100+ before long. What is the normal engine temp for these trucks in the summer. Thanks guys.

194-200 is normal range. I typically see 196 here in GA. Mine is an inch below as well.

We got them on, they work wonders! The drilling was a pain in the @ss. Would have been nice if we would have had a lift, but we did it on the ground. Thanks to uga33, the job got done very nicely!

Mine stays about an inch below the fill level as well. There is still plenty of coolant in that system to do its job. Or just go get ya the new 6.7 scorpion before the summer hits.... I can get coolant to come up to 220-230 when testing really hard in the 100 degree weather, but it comes down fast when that jet engine of a cooling fan kicks in.
