Ive also heard great things about the flex a lite fans. They replace the existing fan and shroud and like he said above, keep your motor cooler longer, therefore being able to use more power for a longer period of time. But yea, I have also heard they work very well. If you end up getting that set up, let us know how it works for you.

My truck wants to be a semi when it grows up...

Faster warm up, and keeps it cooler, makes more power, and increases MPG. I'm looking into running a cheaper set up. Probably something like they did on the latest issue of Diesel Power.

thanks for the input. I was looking for something better when I am towing around here and peoplke don't know how to use a turn out. just because I have a 30' trailer on does not mean I can't drive 55. so I get stuck with people trying to stay ahead of me doing 35 and don't move a lot of air etc and thought this could help. I will have to pick up diesel power and see what they had cuz the flexalite is spendy but they prolly had a lot of work into getting that setup.

Well I think the most work will come getting the fan off, I'm yet to get my fan off. I don't know if it's just rusted solid or what. I've even local area shops have it w/ no luck. I'm probably going to just use a plasma cutters here soon.

I was on flexalite's web site and can't find anything listed specifically for a dodge.
