The fan setup looks good. If you hadnt of said i was going to suggest hood vents. The 4.0L can get a bit toasty and the hood vents do help.

Took the Jeep out yesterday for the first time in a couple months. First off is the fan setup I guess. It works great. I didnít have any heat soak issues all day even with air temps in the 80ís. I turned on the fan for a couple minutes after shutting the Jeep down and it pushed all the heat right out of the engine bay.

Jeep ran great all day. The hydro steering was great offroad. It makes trail riding so much nicer. Power steering pump didnít overheat so I guess that means I have a big enough steering cooler. I ran the electric fan all the time while wheeling because it pulls air past the steering cooler. Jeep overall did very well. Few new dents and scratches but nothing major. Drove home 2 hours at 75 mph with no real issues afterwards. My oil filter adapter has developed a pretty good leak, but thatís pretty common in these 4.0ís.

Hereís the few pics I got. Everything else was videos.

No real updates. I really should replace that oil filter adapter o ring. Itís leaking oil down onto the exhaust... I think Iím about due for an oil change anyway. But yes, Luke will be around to check it out Thursday.

So actually I do have something new today. The pieces came in today to convert my old kegerator CO2 tank into a portable air supply! Once this tank is empty Iíll probably trade up to a 10# tank. But this should get me started.
