235 is right where it should be and it will rise as the ambient temp rises in the summer. I have seen 270 to 280 before and never had a problem. I use to run a HD 6 row oil cooler which broke on me so it is in the trash and now I run a 10 row Jagg which is much better than the HD oil cooler.
Run a good full synthetic oil in the engine because it will not break down with the higher engine temps.

235 would be normal with the stock oil cooler. I run the Oil Bud Oil Cooler and on an 80 degree plus day my oil temp stays at 200 on the freeway and rarely goes over 210 in city traffic.
