engine is getting hot when i tow

I have a 2020 Gladiator Rubicon. I can drive it all day at any speed and the temp is 220 or less. I have a small trailer that I tow under 3000lbs. When I to and hit 65mph the temp starts rising at 70 the temp is as high as 250. The veh has never over heated. I put 5:13 gears in to make towing better and nothing. I have played around with it and the temp seems to be all over the place. It is very sensitive and once it gets hot and I slow back to 60 the temp does not come down.

Any thoughts

Do you still have your air dam? You could also add transmission cooler.

Oil cooler might help. Hav this for my wrangler https://www.jeepsareus.com/sku/82212...ml#col-fitment. Also, check your thermostat if it's really working.
