I have no idea if I have an aftermarket thermostat or not, and it takes quite a
while to get heat. Is this normal? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated

Sounds like the thermostat is stuck open. You should have a 195°F thermostat in there. HTH. -Jim

160 to 170 mph is pretty fast for a truck, just sayin.

If you live where it is really cold you may need to block off part of the radiator.
