Thumbs up Introduction of a new member

Hi guys

I am a Wrangler Sport TJ 2006 user a little over one year. I bought this marvalous piece of machine from a dutch women. I am an Orthopedic and a Trauma Surgeon by profession. My home is in Oakville, Canada but my job is in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Since Orthopedic Surgery is all about cutting bones and fixing joints so there is a small little mechanic up there in my head who is compelling me to fix add ons to my Wrangler in whatever small little time I get to unwind myself. Majority of the Jeepers in here are into off-road desert driving but I have interests in non-hardcore (soft-core) rock crawling. Unfortunately neither there are Rubicon Trails like terrian in here nor people interested in such sport. Therefore 60% of my free time is involved in off-road desert driving, 30% in installing add-ons to my truck and only 10% in the so called soft-core rock crawling. The reason I have enrolled myself in the Wrangler Forum is to get advises from experienced fellow members and share mine with them. My first advise to the Wranglar enthusiasts out there (especially in Australia) is that a 5-speed manual transmission works better than a 6-speed transmission for desert driving.

Thanks guys. Some people tell me to remove the stock radiator fan of TJ and replace it with an electric fan. This will enhance the power of the engine and reduce the engine noise especially when we need to floor the acelarator pedal when climbing a steep sand dune in desert. Is this correct? If it is correct then which electric fan is recommended. Looking at the size of the stock fan, I was wondering if I can use BMW X5's electric fan as a replacement? Is there anyone who has any experience on this matter?

one question more. What will go wrong if I do not replace a faulty fan clutch and the fan is running all the time in a TJ?
