I have a set of OEM dual fans from a 02 Rodeo sport I took the body from, along with all the wiring harness, relays, and fuses to make it work. It looks to just bolt up to the radiator on the engine side, I just need to remove the engine fan to make it fit. I just didn't know if there was any significant improvement, ive never acutally had a cooling issue with the current fan, but it is starting to stay engaged at lower temps. I've powered them on with a spare battery, they put out some serious juice, not sure of the amp draw but the fuse is 30 amps.

I may experiment, I was thinking using a temp switch to turn on one fan when it hits ~190 deg, and then use the A/C relay to turn on the other fan. And maybe wire in hard switches to just turn them on and off manually.

Anyone have any good ideas for mounting a 60" hi lift? I was thinking about clamping on the bull bar or making brackets and bolting to the rear door by the hinges.

Spring Beasley Knob trip was a great time. I even had to use my winch this time. but nothing could stop us. See more pics of the GA Zu Cru on this thread:
viewtopic.php?f=9&t=105377

But I will post my Gratuitous Poser shots here.

While on top, the mtns micro weather patterns set in and it started pouring, it made things way more interesting on the way out.

The rear locker works much better this time around, I think the guys who installed it when they did my gear set up put it in wrong. It's not hard to do on this powertrax model, I put it together on the bench 4 different ways that would fit in the carrier but only 1 way is correct. I stayed locked, I even did alot of the trail in just rwd. It's a twisty trail so the locker up front hinders my steering Abit. It's nice to be able to switch it off and still have a locked rear to push me up and over. I did use my winch on one rough apot, it was about a 2-3 ft rock ledge. I made it up under my own power but used the winch line to keep from rolling backwards. I'm extra cautious now, I don't want to be on my roof again...

The only issue I had was the tight twisty MTN roads to get there were not much fun with locker pushing me when it reengaged after a turn. After While I got use to it, did alot more coasting then driving in a turn. But id say as long as this one doesn't break it's gonna stay in the rear.
