ARB Bullbar on 1999 wj, why do i need hydraulic cooling?
Im picking up an ARB Bullbar tonight, and was reading around on their website. I noticed it says that I have to upgrade to hydraulic cooling. Is this something I can work around. Advice from 99-00 wj owners who have done this is appreciated.
Added weight and redirection of air flow might cause you to run hotter.But if your cooling system is function properly and has been properly maintain I do not see it actually causing an issue. With the combination of a mechanical fan and e-fan you should be fine. Assuming you have both like on my 99. I say install it, and monitor your temps and see if there is a change and go from there. Good luck.

By hydraulic, I assume they mean hydraulic clutch fan. Not hydraulic driven fan. Either way don't worry about it. I only have the factory e-fan and have no over heating issues with my arb and warn m8000 combo.
