I tried 2 electric 2200 CFM fans last summer on m rig. Did not work very well while towing, engine was running pretty warm in town. So I took them off, and put the stock fan and clutch back on.

Looking for a set of 3.55 gears if anyone has a decent deal or wants to swap.

I have yet to look into it, but I know some one one here, like alberta7.3? I think, has an international electric fan clutch instead of the fluid clutch.

This is something that I really would like to know more about when io get some extra time.

look into a 2 speed ford taurus fan. They put out something 3000+ cfms in high. I havent tried it on mine yet but I have the fan waiting just not the time to put it in. You can pick them up at u-pull-it yards cheap if you have any around you. I got mine for $12. Also might want to look into a pair of subaru fans they are also two speed and you should be able to fit two on the rad. cause of there size. Either option I dont see a problem keeping the truck cool.

DIY 6637 intake

4" AFE exhuast system
Autometer Gauges
Tony wildman Chip.
More to come as finances allow!
