Just from what ee've gone thru i would think your culrit is clogged radiator + plus absence of a shroud. I have the same radiator and engine setup w zero overheating issues.

Also - your thermostat is clogged closed is it?

Just went out and looked at the fan, its not the factory one. Looks like a flex-a-lite or something similar. It moves a lot of air behind the fan, but don't feel much pull in front of the rad.

I'm going to get a shroud, have the rad rodded, coolant flush/replacement and go from there.

LG, do you have any pics of that hood vent? It looks much better than the ones I have seen

The vent on the front of the hood of the red Jeep is the one I'm talking about.
I have it at the back of my hood.
I',m not 'puter smart and can't post a picture, SORRY.

While under the hood with the engine running increase rpm's to about 1500. My guess the fan blades are flattening out, and not moving any air. You should be able to feel if air is moving or not. This is a classic example of a Preformance fan, and more than likely the cause of your temp rise on the trail. With this fan, a shroud won't help.

Yes the fan does flatten out. I've got a few 304s laying around. I'll c check them for a factory fan if you think it will help

I know it will help!!

A shroud will help with temps at idle.
