      It’s mostly 2003 Chevy Silverado stuff. If you watch this build video, you will see that it is a heavily involved swap. Starting with mounting a Toyota box on the outside of the frame.

    This is a repost I made on one of your videos ---> you need to do what we do out in west Texas where 100 plus is the norm and amp your oil cooler game way up..also going to a group 4 synthetic like Amsoil will not only eliminate 40-60 % of your heat causing friction it will also make your oil coolers more efficient with higher thermo wicking ability..you said you have spent thousands why not spend 3-5 hundred more (depending on what cooler solution you go with) I promise it's money well spent..you will truly be amazed with the results..btw love you all's style..just subscribed..look forward to watching all your videos..

    I had similar overheating problems came to similar conclusions with my '79 Bronco. Final configuration was a F600 radiator shell from same '70s era truck , custom made 3 core, extra large passages, 100 percent drive stainless 7 bladed flex fan(no clutch). It is loud at high revs so I just turn up the radio. Always floats around 185-190 DegF, on the beach, revving in the sand, with A/C on. I'm fortunate that my vehicle has enough room for the large cooling system. Flow-cooler used to make a rivet-on back plate you could mount to you factory water pump. Worked for me.

    So we have all kinds of information except WHAT THE MODEL NUMBERS IS ON THE COOLING FAN !!!! Is that a GM Trailblazer fan ?
    I could use that on my Jeep WJ . Great videos guys. And yes. Flow cooler pumps are actually crap. You can find other companies that have the enclosed impellers made of steel . I have two that I bought through Rock Auto. Just analyze photos and ask, EBay sellers have them as well .
    Stay safe guys … and gal !

    Slow the water down. If you're pushing the water through the radiator at warp speed, there's no chance in hell for it to do it's job, and cool the water. Don't use high volume, high speed, high performance water pumps.

    The problem with mechanical fans is they're only gonna spin as long as your mechanical clutch holds up... For an offroad only rig, a solid fan adapter with no clutching mechanism is the way to go IMO... yeah, mpg will suck, it'll sound like a cessna, but one less part to fail. Plus, all clutches spin at a certain percentage of the pulley speed, it's never 100%... I'd love to find a plastic mechanical fan (preferably with more blades but lighter than the factory metal one) that would fit the stock radiator/shroud...

      I already went across the Rubicon with this exact mechanical fan set up. The MORRVAIR kept a steady 185° on the coolant. And 190° on the oil temp. If I can crawl through the dunes pulling a trailer, and keep cool, there is not a trail on the planet that will stop my cooling system.

      @Matt's Off Road Recovery is there much modifications as far as mounting it to the engine? Or are you using the fan clutch from a Jeep and bolting the fan to the clutch like that? Reason I ask is I just did the aluminum radiator and 3 electric fans, took it for a test run and it stays great on freeway driving, but once I started crawling on rocks and going slow it will not stay below 210. It slowly starts to spike.

    I would like to make it clear that This video is not a response to to trolls, or for feeding the haters.
    I enjoy engaging my audience, and I got a lot of questions about why I was going through all the work to put a mechanical fan on the new build.
    The logical argument is for an electric fan, due to much easier adaptation and their perceived superiority at trail speeds, and crawling.
    This just is a way for me to answer hundreds of questions and one easy video segment instead of answer each one individually.
    If I ever respond to a hater or a troll, it will be with sarcasm and humor.
    And I may use sarcasm and humor to a certain extent to answer every question. so, try to keep up.
    And as always, thanks for watching.

      I have tried every blend of everything you can imagine. And a whole bunch of other stuff that you can’t. One thing that I haven’t tried, is waterless coolant. I like that it has a much higher boiling point, but I don’t like that it’s thermal efficiency is down quite a bit.

Rather than answer the question hundreds of times in the comments, I just address it in the next video. I actually enjoy the exchange.

    Your practical information is really great! I've put an electric fan on every vehicle I've owned (that didn't come with one) because of the HP leach. Never had an issue in southern California heat. But it makes sense if you're running high RPM, dragging vehicles at low speeds. Probably why big rigs and tractors (that I've seen) don't use electric fans.

    A few other thoughts on keeping it cool, high quality window tints. I've heard of other race car guys using a product called lizard skin which is a spray-on insulation coating anything you can do to keep the cabin temperatures down and less load on the air conditioning will greatly help. Not only is the condenser rejecting heat the compressor is powered by the engine which is inefficient and generating heat to power the compressor that heat has to go out the radiator. If you're getting hot on the highway I would also make sure you've got a good seal on the hood up by the cowel since that's a high pressure area you can also attempt to put a little deflector in front of where the louvers are to create a low pressure behind it and draw more air out. Race louvers has some interesting videos you can watch too

    My opinion: The OEM exhaust scavenging is poor. This includes the as-cast exhaust ports & the restrictive exhaust manifold. The excessive turbulence of the exhaust pulse is heating the Head & eventually the water, or do you guys run anti-freeze? Since you guys run in excessively high daytime temps., see if you can't find another cylinder head. Take it to a shop that does its own porting; wouldn't hurt to clean up the intake & hopefully the valves/springs in the revised head are good. Maybe talk about a performance valve seat job too, it will also improve flow but talk to the shop. Then swap the head w/ the original, should take a couple of hours & you're back on the road. Early Chevy 454's ran hot, but cleaned up the ports & they ran much cooler. Harley-Davidson shovelheads had the same issue, turned the exhaust pipes at the head a real dark blue. W/ some minor head porting, my new pipes turned a mild gold color instead, huge difference. Add a cheap set of headers to the Banana & I think the overheating issues should be less of a problem. I didn't say 'solved', I'm an Engineer, only using the revised head & header in your application will tell you if the overheating issues are solved. I'm just trying to get you closer. I enjoy your video's. Can't imagine working in 104F temps.

      Yup And also, realize that it looks like I have overheating issues, but I really don’t. This was showcased this last summer when a stock Humvees tried to keep the same pace that I was doing the 2 miles leading up to the top of the dunes. (search and rescue EMT unit) Even though I was pulling a trailer through 110° temperatures, the upgrades that I made to the original system allowed me to help them continue the mission. (I was running AC, and they were running none btw) So while it looks like I’m showing an overheating XJ a lot, any vehicle I choose would boil over under the environment unless the cooling system was upgraded. Think about doing repeated dyno pulls with no auxiliary fans, or doing a burnout competition for 20 minutes with no natural airflow over the cooling system. That’s what I do in 115° weather. The wall I was up against was the physical size of the radiator. I was just completely out of space to Exchange heat. With nearly double radiator size now, I’m not anticipating any problems with all the other little tricks that I’ve learned over the last ten years.

    Dirt Track race cars had cooling issues for High RPM as well. Most guys put larger pulleys on the water pumps, slow them down. Solves the problem when running 6000-9000rpm on a small block chevy. Same fix for my hot rod with 5.19 gears that i run 4000-5000rpm. Overdrive the waterpump, use mechanical fan, make a decent shroud, aluminum radiator.

    I run a slightly warmed up .030 over 400 sbc in a 79 chevy k20. All I use is the stock clutch fan, big block radiator and the full factory fan shroud. Even in the Ga humid mid 90's summer days, it never comes close to overheating.

    I'm curious he's using straight water, or antifreeze mix, because antifreeze helps prevent cavitation.

    Why don't you use AGM battery? Doesn't have to be Optima, any AGM that fit, will do just fine and you don't have to be scare about any leaks from it. At least in EU, the price difference is merely 20$, not much for piece of mind.

    If you still have a cooling issue after all the mods, try reading up on a pre pressurized cooling system.

    I installed 12” and 10” Mishamoto racing fans in a 2006 Grand Cherokee, HEMI to replace the disaster hydraulic cooling fan. All aluminum radiator, custom TIGed a aluminum shroud. Used a two temp VW thermo switch and wired in multiple relays into stock relay/fuse box. Took old actuator/solenoid for hydraulic fan system, installed it on the original wiring and zip tied it to frame to avoid check engine light and also ran independent of ECU all together. Wired so both fans come on with AC and one or both depending on engine temp come on without AC on. With no AC here in Fort Worth, second fan never comes on. I also got a used complete fuse box off ebay so i could wire the new relays and fuses directly into factory fuse box so it looks stock. the new system stays crazy cool. Ran the thermal switch originally at thermostat housing but made fan come on intermittently from thermostat opening so i moved it and welded a new switch mount out of two stock thermostat hose mounts then installed right as hose enters radiator and fixed the only issue. Those two Mishomoto fans pull 3450 CFM together and have lower amp draw than anything else on the market and they use brushless lifetime warranty motors. You may have used a Mishomoto fan before but im betting not a racing fan with the huge blades. Guarantee you would never have a cooling issue again if you went this route.
