Anybody running an auxiliary fan in front of their radiator for extra cooling? I was thinking of putting one on to get ready for summer traffic was wondering if anyone had any experience with one? :beerme:

I don't have a ton of experience with jeeps, but imo you shouldn't need another fan unless u live in a super hot area and you drive excessively slow. When I changed out my radiator I put in a larger one just to make sure it wouldn't get hot.

Did the radiator fit or was their any enlongating necessary
What do you mean elongation? The only thing I had to do was drill out a hole for the fan shroud, the width and everything was fine though. I also drilled out the thread and put bolts in because I couldn't find the correct thread pattern

Stock thermostat is 195. Running at correct temperature is the most efficient. (reading the most power and the best mileage)

It was 102 yesterday, and again today. I have the massive Warn PowerPlant in front of my radiator, and I have no overheating issues.

Just replaced the t-stat on mine from the dealer and it stays around 195-205 on the highway around where I live there's a lot of hills and goes up to 210 and stays there I would just personally feel better if it can stay alittle under 210 all the time,...I could just be crazy :p

210 is the NORMAL operating temp for these.
