It's been discussed a millions time so what's a million and 1 more

I own a 2001 jeep cherokee xj. I recently dropped a reman motor with no miles into it.also replaced the water pump with a hi-flow, thermostat (195°), thermo housing, electric fan, temp sensor, radiator cap and fan clutch. Radiator is approximately 3 years old from cfs 2 row. It's not leaking.
Here is my issue. The damn thing is running at 215 down the highway. I live in AZ where it's 108 degrees today. Is this normal or should it be running a little cooler.
Things to note : the Ac is currently out of operation. So it hasn't been in use while driving. Also, the radiator was burped and filled with %100 antifreeze. No distilled water.
What would cause it to run so hot??
