This is a discussion I've been having with a buddy of mine (More a brainstorm)
I've got NO overheating issues whatsoever, but my main problem is the good ol' slushbox getting hot when 4x4ing or hauling wood and such in my local summer temps (40 deg C and up).
My thought on the use of electric fans, is that I can turn them on constantly while driving slowly, like in 4LO up a hill, and possibly get better airflow then the stock fan whizzing away.
I already have a custom built-by-me B&M trans cooler on top of my stock 4R100 cooler, but in this kinda weather, the cooler the better for the damn trans.
The other advantage is it'll give me faster warm-ups in the winter, where it get's the exact opposite, and goes to -15 deg C.
I'm looking to see what ya'll have to say about electrics for low speed cooling, yay or nay. I already have a set of Flex-A-Lites that I got new on a helluva deal, so it up to the decidion of 'Will it cool better'??
