    I'm removing the banks header from my xj this weekend and going back to stock. It's made my engine run way hotter. It is the 4.0, not sure if yours being a 4.6 would help anything but it's going to be hot. Hopefully your improved cooling system helps but I had to stop a few times this weekend to cool down in the heat of death valley this past weekend. Had the efan on one hundred percent of the time also. Keep an eye on that

    I always go electric fan on my cherokees and they don't overheat at all, I've keep the stock radiator added 16 inch fan . And added luvers to the hood to let the heat out. You guys know your stuff but have you tried an electric fan on the rig yet?

    You Guys also should be taking in Fresh Filtered Outside Air , not Superheated Engine bay air to the Engine Carburetor or Fuel injection system.
    1) Engine Runs Cooler.
    2) Better Fuel economy - Cooler air more dense.
    3) More Horsepower
    4) Longer engine Life
    5) Less chance For Pre-ignition or detonation to occur on a Hot day with Regular fuel.

    You Need to have a Fan shroud on the Radiator to Duct the air / be able to actually pull air through a Radiator at Low speed & idle. other wise its just a Fan spinning in the air. ducting the air / in a fan shroud utilizes 100% of the Radiator and gives Proper air flow through the radiator & condenser.
    Your Going to Need that in over 100 degree heat for sure.

      They are very heavy, they have a very narrow power band, and The power is more difficult to modulate on loose surfaces than a gasoline engine. We do most all our recovery in the softest sand known on planet earth. Diesel powered vehicles do not do well in it.

    Hi Lizzy,
    I had the same question about the fitment of the valve cover and just went back a few episodes to where the original engine was in the Banana. It looked the same, so I knew the new engine would fit.
    Two big electric fans with shrowd on the front of the radiator solves the cooling, the engine-driven fan coming forward into the radiator, the engine-driven fan hitting the hood, and trying to make a shrowd for the engine-driven fan. Yes, I know you are skeptical about electrical fans, but they work in high horsepower applications, not just Jeeps.
    Banks makes amazingly good parts, mostly for diesels, but for other stuff too.
    I would have thought that two limit straps, tied to the top shot mounts would have been lighter and simpler.

    Dude, when you busted out that old ass grand Cherokee w/p powered mechanical fan idea… I can’t be the only xj guy of being like- that literally is worse than stock and isn’t gonna work. Love y’all’s fab videos, and we all make weird rabbit hole decisions. Can’t wait to see the banana going again. Idk why you went through so much trouble when it would’ve been easier to run a stock xj fan location and then a super electric aux fan.

      @Matt's Off Road Recovery I guess I’ll keep watching to see the final product. I’m not apposed to mechanical fans at all, just curious as to why you’d prefer the grand Cherokee w/p setup over the stock offset xj setup? Looking forward to the rest of the build. Thanks for the reply. You guys rock!

      I think you’re going to be shocked at the performance. I’ve already got this same system working in the morrvair, and it blows ice cold AC when it’s 117° outside, pulling a trailer through the dunes, with water temps in the 195° range. I don’t understand peoples aversions to mechanical clutch fan systems, but every single heavy duty Towing rig on the planet is running them. All my super duty trucks, all my Freightliner trucks…, If it has to pull heavy loads at higher RPMs and lower speeds, it will have a mechanical fan.

    That Radiator and Fan combo may keep the Movair cool, but the 4.0 packed in the small space is another beast on its on. But with the larger rad and vents you should be fine. Interested to see how to overcome the higher fan / hood clearance.
    Some people have a hood scoop for their blower... You may have the very first FAN hood scoop!

      I have very high hopes for this. I’ve done a lot of research online, and then done a massive amount of research myself. With this jeep, the three or four other jeeps I own, and the morrvair. I know how to keep an XJ cool everywhere except for pulling a trailer through the sand when it’s over 110° At about 102°, I have to turn the air conditioning off. At about 106°, I have to intermittently run the heater. Than morrvair has a far tighter engine bay than the Xj. No hood vents, in fact the trunk weatherstripping is even installed. (it used to be the trunk) Recently it was 117°, I had a tail wind, a trailer, and the AC blasting ice cold. 195° for the coolant temps, give or take a few degrees. With the hot water circulation duct plugged, and a few other secret tricks, I expect a similar results.

    I enjoy the fabrication and modifications and especially like the off-road recoveries (why i started watching the channel), but I think MOOR has now jumped the shark. It feels like the downside of American Chopper when that crew stopped making motorcycles and turned to YouTube/TV tricks and pranks. I don't think you guys need to try and be YouTuber's will all the silliness, IMO focus on the core things that made you famous.

    Why not use some electric high performance fans that fit on on that rad? I mean I did the same thing with my 92 Silverado, I put in a performance rad that wasn't even made that truck and mounted it in a way where I don't need the shroud anymore, and used an Electric fan that some of them drag cars use (love living buy Summit racing) as I haul with the truck all time and cooling I wanted to improve, I'm sure there is a reason, you want to stay with a clutch fan.

      The system you described last a few minutes driving up the sand dunes pulling a trailer before the coolant was boiling out. The mechanical fan will move about twice as much air as the best pair of electric fans. The scenario that I’m building for is 5000 RPM engine speed, pulling a trailer through the sand dunes, below 10 mph, For 15 minutes uninterrupted.

    I don't always know when I think I know what I know.
    To open my eyes and my mind a bit wider,
    so I can search a bit deeper, hoping to find

    what I need to know as I grow inside a bit deeper .
    Might just make for a bit of a better day.
    One thing's for sure, though,
    I won't always know when I think I know what I know.
    And to be so very cautious when
    choosing someone whom I may share
    a bit of my trust with.

    Good pick on the banks headers. Do some research on banks and youll find they probably test their products more than anyone. they also have a good intake although itll be tough to fit with your hood clearance. either way id like to see you figure out how to get some cool air to the motor. that hot air intake you have in the corvair is killing your IAT's. love your channel keep up the good work
