Being fairly new to the land of Jeep and having a grand desire to add more goodies to my new toy, my next wad of cash ( the kids don't need food or clothing ) is going to a front bumper and winch. But looking at some of the set ups out there I was wondering if there is a problem with restricted air flow due to lights winch etc. which may cause over heating. Is that a problem or can I load her up?
It would be good if you filled out your Jeep specs in your profile. I don't know much about TJs, but I'm sure that they are similar to YJs. I put a Taurus Fan on mine. Well not exactly a Taurus fan, a Mark VII fan. Same 2-speed motor, just different fins and cowling. Do a search and you'll find alot. I have it thermostatically controlled on low speed. I actually had to manually kick on high speed last weekend going up a 40 degree grade to Barrett Lake Trail. I have a 8000 lb. Mile Marker winch in front also. As long as your moving at normal driving speed, you won't overheat. At low speed or stop is when things warm up. Thats what is nice about having an electric fan.
