2000 4x4 crew cab questions

I love this truck but have a few issues/questions.

Every time a pull a trailer the fan is on 80% of the time and kills my higher rpm power. Does this happen to anyone else? Is my fan clutch temp too low? The temp gauge is never past half way.

Does anyone ever have any problems switching into 4-low? There I was this past weekend with a 27' trailer, 3 ATV's and my rear axle bogged down in sand. It took me a good 15 min to get it into 4-low...Then it climbed right out.

Thanks.

Orion

my fan stays ingaged 80-90% of the time on realy hot days the rest of the time it hardly ever kicks in....

you will have trouble locking into 4low if you have any resistance against the axle... some times you have to shift back and forth from reverse to drive and posibly even spin the tires in difrent directions a few times to get it to engage and Ive found out 4 low always engages best when in nuetral

I know on my ranger & explorer with the electric shift you had to be in nuetral and had to apply the brake before it would switch into 4-Lo. Not sure if that applies to the powerstroke as I have the tried and true shift on the floor
