REPLACED RADIATOR, WATER PUMP, AND THER

Engine Cooling problem
1976 Jeep Commander V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 70,000 miles

I have a 350 chevy 5.7 with a edelbrock 650. All rebuilt and new. I then replaced the rad, pump, and thermo. Even added racing coolant and still runs at 225 - 235 on the heat laser. I have even tried to drop the thermo to 180 heavy duty from 195 still no change. The shroud and 2 cooling fans are all operational and the thermo sensor is new. It doesnt overheat, but truth is I dont take it out for long runs just yet. Thanks for your time and help.
