with 4" straight pipe, and goose neck hitch. Pretty much stock, needs 4x4 implant though. An interesting drive in the snow to say the least!

might stand for "Fix Or Repair Daily", but that's what I like doing, fixing things, mostly my vehicles.

personally im concidering going to an electric fan on a switch free up some power so it dose not have as many accs to run off the belts then my motor can heat up a bit more in the winter and keep it cool in the summer

I did my fan clutch a few years back. I think it ran about $90 if I remember correctly. I got it mail order with the radiator.

I have read on here numerous times that electric fans do not work well with these trucks simply because they don't pull mover enough air.

Not to mention that moving a given volume of air v per minute takes x horsepower, regardless of whether the fan is driven mechanically or electrically.

Thanks guys, I agree that it doesnt matter how you do it, electric or mechanical if you need 3 hp to move the right amount of air you need 3 hp to move that air either 3 hp off the crank or 3 off the batteries (through the alternator) its all the same. Something that I remember from school. Plus i dont need more HPs got enough for what Im doing.

3 hp = 2.23709961 kilowatts. 95A*12V=1140W peak (probably on a 65% duty cycle.) Typical fan draw is closer to 114 watts than 1140.
