I was using my torque wrench on my shock bolts... I was using a SAE? (not metric) socket on them, so it was not an exact fit (Did not have any 1/2 drive metric sockets, and lowes was out of 1/2 to 3/8 drive adapters today). So it tore up the socket but did not do any damage on the bolt...

Hahaha, I am sure it is just as loud as the mechanical fan is! But I like having both if the e-fan were to die on me.

Yeah my efan died out of town when we went to eat. let it sit a few days after we limped it home, tore apart the front end and diagnosed everything, threw it back together and no problems. This was in a 30min time span

The 4.0 is much more forgiving with an overheat. I had mine start creeping past 210 on the beach when I was pushing hard. At the time my mechanical fan clutch was dead and the e-fan was not able to keep up.

This is a -1 for the v8... less forgiving then an overheat. But my mechanical and e-fan do the job.

-1 for the i6 for having a crappy e-fan relay design that will just fail without warning and allow for overheat. And I wouldnt want to overheat my i6 in any circumstance simply because I do not trust the 0331 head just as much as I dont trust the alluminum 4.7 heads. I do agree the overheat with the v8 thing is a big nono but if everything is maintained and you're not doing something horribly wrong... there shouldnt be any overheating.

While I will agree about the e-fan being crap haha. Like I said, when my mechanical fan clutch was dead, the e-fan could not keep up on the beach. Granted it was 95 degrees, AC blasting, and my foot down hard on the beach.

Eww I forgot, the 2001's with that crappy cast...

I will also agree, there should not be a reason for overheating unless something is wrong with it. Under normal conditions you should be fine with the 4.7

It probably depends on the severity and duration...

True.
Tonight I managed to install the addcco rear sway bar from my first jeep.
It handles amazingly on highway and off ramps

robd what are your suspension mods... she sure doesnt look stock from your avatar but your sig and Jeep info say otherwise. I'm curious because I was always interested in the addco but was nervous of adding it to a lifted Jeep. I know it stiffens the feel out alot but I'm not sure if... on a lifted Jeep with higher center of gravity... this puts it at a higher risk of lifting a tire and possibly flipping. With my OME's I've tested I can still... in normal conditions.... lose traction without getting near that "ohhh shhhhh we're going over" point

My avatar was my 03 V8 I had, it was lifted 4" with rc-x components, and 265/70R17 m/t's which measured almost 33's. It handled a lot better on highway, but off road really did limit about 3 inches of flex, when I get a chance this week ill take a pic of stock jeep flex on my log without swaybar and with sway bar so you see the difference.

I never once felt tippy offroad with it either.

Awesome... How was that bar on the road while lifted? Michael I know this is in your build thread but it's relevant because you're going to be gettin one of these inevitably
