Question Thermostat 91 Nissan

Is it ok to run my truck in summer without thermostat. And why would they take the backing off of the thermostat housing. I seen this in a video I was watching

Just use a genuine nissan thermostat. If you have a problem that is causing the truck to run hot you should fix that problem instead of masking it. It’s like removing the brake pads because they’re squealing.
