auxiliary cooling fan JK....

I am entertaining the idea of installing an auxiliary electric cooling fan in front of my condenser. I live in Kuwait where the temperature in the summer is 120+ F and driving is usually in traffic. My jk is still slightly new (2016) but I want to increase the cooling efficiency. I am not having issues i just want to relax and think the engine is getting the cooling it needs. My concerns are as follows

1. will a fan installed in front of the A/C condenser block the air while driving on highways?
2. wouldn't be there a conflict between the pusher fan and the puller fan since basically the puller will cancel the pusher unless the pusher is higher?
3. my ultimate goal is to cool down the engine and make the a/c super cool.

your input is highly appreciated...

Thanks

1: Yes, it will get in the way of the natural airflow at highway speeds.
2: Your stock fan is variable speed, so it will run slower on the highway and faster in traffic. I don't think you would be doing yourself any good.
3: If your temps are good in traffic, you won't see a difference in the AC by adding a fan. It can only do so much in 120* weather.

If it's not broken - don't fix it.
Adding an additional fan will impede air flow. Your improvement will probably result in less cooling, not more.

Leave it alone. Your radiator fan is just there for idling and slow driving. On the highway it doesnt help much because the airflow being forced in by just driving is so much greater.

When they test these things, they put them in a closed off, very hot area area with zero airflow and let them idle for days at a time.
