so with it, i will fail my emissions.
and whats moisture flash off?
You won't fail any sniffer tests. Those are very lax compared to new car EPA requirements.
In time, unwelcome moisture will invade all of your vehicles fluids if not perfectly sealed. This is one of the reasons why brake and tranny fluid need to be flushed from time to time. Also, a small amount of water vapor (product of combustion) squeezes past your piston rings and mingles with the hot oil when the engine is running. Later, the vapor condenses into water as the engine cools after being turned off.
By warming the engine to a minimum temperature ensures the water is "flashed-off" or revaporized thus preventing damage.

Bryan do you think we in Texas could get away with the 176 t-stat even with the weather being cool like it is here in Waco
I'm not familiar with Waco's winters, but I imagine you would be fine. Your Jeep would be happy as a clam even though it might throw an undertemp CEL. I am thinking more along the lines of -47 in Minnesota.
Will these instructions have to be modified with a ThorHammer installed?
The Dunning–Kruger effect is a cognitive bias in which unskilled people make poor decisions and reach erroneous conclusions, but their incompetence denies them the metacognitive ability to realize their mistakes. The unskilled therefore suffer from illusory superiority, rating their own ability as above average, much higher than it actually is, while the highly skilled underrate their abilities, suffering from illusory inferiority. This leads to the situation in which less competent people rate their own ability higher than more competent people. It also explains why actual competence may weaken self-confidence. Competent individuals falsely assume that others have an equivalent understanding. "Thus, the miscalibration of the incompetent stems from an error about the self, whereas the miscalibration of the highly competent stems from an error about others."
