Okay so one more post while its on my mind. Some of you may remember that I was having some overheating issues last Saturday. So by recommendation of Adam, I bought a new thermostat for the Jeep yesterday. I'm going to put it in tonight...its a 195 degree one instead of the stock 210 degree. I'm hoping this does the trick.

I read on the forum that some guys have problems with their fan clutch not engaging at the right time. I'm wondering if mine is doing the same because I noticed when I revved up the motor, the engine temp dropped back down to about 210 (normal temp) really fast. I'm thinking the faster rotations on the motor spun the fan quicker making it engage and therefore it cooled things down. If I have any more problems this weekend, I'm replacing the fan clutch for sure. Heat is BAD for any motor and I don't want to play around with this issue very long.

I've flirted with the idea of putting one of these on the hood but always held back...maybe this is a reason to do it after all..hmmmm...

Any thoughts for or against?

This looks bad ***. However, when it comes to my Jeep I always put function first and fashion second. I installed an electric fan and it works great keeping my 360 amc cool.

It all depends how they look when I get them into Photoshop. I have a couple of them selected though!

Sorry it has taken so long!

Patience is a virtue, thanks guys!!!!

Looked like a great trip, once I get locked and get my 33s on, I hope to come along and represent the Old YJs!

I dig those, they just got made available for YJs, I will one day add that to mine. I'd love to see some tests on it to prove the effectiveness of it, from an airflow/heat reduction standpoint.

I broke down and renewed my Jeepforum subscription today. I haven't surfed around on here much in the past year until today. I'm once again blown away by how awesome so many rigs on here are. I guess if I still lived with my parents and didn't have student loans, though, mine would be just as nice.
I personally think you are doing quite well with yours, you've got plenty of time ahead of you, and I think you are on the right track with that beast.

What's your clubs name? If we see you guys around, we'll definitely introduce ourselves. We just got back from the Badlands yesterday and we did the Cliffs we weekend before. I'm not sure if we'll be doing another run this month.
