So I finally made it out to CO and have moved into a short term apartment in Broomfield!

I do have a question for you guys as we get ready for Moab:

I would like to install dual electric fans to help keep things cool on the run out there and back. Any suggestions on shops who can help?

I installed one on my Jeep. Was not hard at all. That is if your into doing it yourself. Got all the parts from Summit. As far as shops sorry can't help you there. Have a hard time trusting anyone. Can help if needed.

Thanks for the vote of confidence! I might just try to do it myself...I don't have a ton of skills but like learning

Thanks Wes. I am a little concerned because the temp gauge got up there a few times on the way out here. Darin thought my fan clutch needed to be rebuilt, so I don't think everything is working as it should.

Maybe I just need to learn how to drive it in the hills...

Yeah, exactly. Rebuild or replace the fan clutch. Electric fan(s) aren't going to fix overheating on the highway. You don't want the fan turning on the highway and the clutch is probably stuck, which screws up the air flow through the radiator.

If it's overheating in traffic or on the trail, then maybe. But even then fixing the fan clutch usually solves it (it's /not/ turning when it should). That assumes you're still running a stock engine, adding a turbo or supercharger would change the equation.

Thanks for all the help gentlemen!

I spent some time on mud yesterday looking at a fan clutch rebuild and consensus seemed like that was the best approach.

Dave, sounds like you agree with that.

My 1HZ is stock, no turbo.
