Polk Audio Speakers w/ some boom mat
Ford 9 blade fan to replace heavy stock fan.
And last but not least, Bed Rug. I think I like it.

Just waiting on the Trek Armor seat covers to ship out on the 17th. Man they are really slow. Must be getting a lot of orders now that they are on Morris4x4.
Next will be water proof head unit (I think), water proof amp and sub.

Fixed my noisy tailgate. Got my Poison Spyder Brawler Bumper and steering box skid, drove all over town.

Good luck with your Ford 9 blade fan. Didn't work well for me, so I went back to stock.

I'm about to install my ORO Swayloc system. And I may throw on my new Poison Spyder front bumper...even though it has no powder coat...I just can't wait!

It seemed to work okay, meaning it kept the engine just as cool as stock did, it was just very noisy. I tried 3 different types of clutches.

Had to adjust my 4wd shifter linkage since installing the AA adapter.

The linkage trunnion was so seized on there I actually had to remove the entire rod from the jeep to break it loose and work it in.

Did you ever try the stock clutch? That's what I will be using. What kind of noise, was it the wind noise from the fan or the new clutches that you installed?

I tried the stock and 2 others, I'm thinking it was a Ford HD and regular clutch. I'm sorry I don't remember now. It was 2 or 3 years ago. I have an auto, so when I stepped on the gas to get moving the JEEP sounded like a 747 taking off. I could even hear it over the radio and the AC blowing on high. Since it did not cool any better, hoping for better AC cooling at idle and low RPM's I just went back to stock setup. It worked but, didn't like the sound it produced.

Well thanks for the heads up. I will post back here once I get it installed with the results. Will be in about a month though.
