clutch fan

so while changing the water pump and thermostat on a buddys 03 sahara i noticed that the fan speed at idle is super slow. he had an overheating issue while at idle and we went ahead and did a full flush and the pump and thermo while it seems to be running fine even tho only driven 15 miles so far, would an electric fan be a good way to go? any help would be great trying to go on a trail ride and want his rig to hold up. thanks

Most people on here are going to recommend not going electric. The stock mechancial fan should do just fine under almost all conditions. Replace the clutch and call it a day.

Mr. Madison, what you've just said ... is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

Its not going to spin much at low rpm when cold. As the engine warms the clutch fan will blow more air over .
