depends, if your coolant comes up to normal operating temp or not. if it doesn't, its the thermostat. if it does, i'd try a reverse flush on coolant system. could be blocked heater core.

You can splice in a heater into your cooling system you just plug it into the house. Put it on a timer for like half an hour before you drive (like when you wake up) and it should be warm when its go time

Is it that your truck doesnt heat up fast enough or the guage doesnt move fast enough, My CJ5 takes about 10 mins to warm up on cold mornings, 6 on an average day.

i wouldn't recommend a hotter or cooler thermostat in any situation in a efi anything. the engine is designed to run at a specified temp from the factory, for best fuel economy, performance etc.

Cheapest and easiest fix I know of is a winterfront. Seems obvious so maybe you've already tried that.
