there is no real room for a secondary fan with all of the coolers that are on the front of these rigs. the only thing i know is to change the fluid regularly and use the ford coolant because it has anti-cavataion properties to it which helps our trucks out greatly.

Yea what do you consider hot? At about 220* the engine fan should come on and cool thing off.
