anyone running a hotter t-stat??

i am thinking about putting in a hotter t-stat for the winter. on my quadzilla i am having a hard time staying at 190. it is pretty much dropping to 150 when i stop. in the summer i run 210 so i would like to get it around there for the winter to put out some good heat. just wondering if anyone else has one in there and what temp are you running in cold climates? anyone happen to have a part number handy on a 10-20 degree hotter t-stat?
thanks for the replies

I leave mine alone. I don't have a Quadzilla so I don't have any exact temps for ya. My opinion is this, Ford built the truck to run in the North America climate, so I would just leave it. If you really want to warm it up a bit more just get one of those blankets that cover your radiator. That's an easier option to me

Fia makes a front end winter cover and then you can change it out for a bug screen in the summer.
