Default Thermostats keep burning up, why?

I have a 94' 4.0 ranger that my parents are giving to me and it needs some work. One thing I can't seem to figure out though is that it goes through thermostats a lot (maybe 1 or 2 a year) and I'm not totally sure why. If anyone could help me that would be great!

I had a similar problem on my 07. I flushed the rad and changed the relay for the thermostat.

Not much info for you but might be worth looking into

Thanks, it might help. Actually just flushed the radiator today so maybe we'll see if that helps at all, if not ill have to change the relay.
