Sounds good Hamp!

I'am guessing the truck is a 4x4? If so the duration on the cam sounds about right.........and I have to agree with zx12rmike on the electric fan! You can leave them on while the engine is off to cool 'er down during lunch-water breaks! You can order them from Jegs or Summit, or pull one from a Dodge Dakota at a wrecking yard.

No electric fans,

I have been down that road before. Even the meanest fans from Flex-o-lite don't move enough air to cool a street car much less a 4X4 which will see a lot of idle/low throttle time, you can't beat the factory fan, fan clutch and shroud for dependability. Besides it would over tax the electrical system (think Obama / middle class..lol), it isn't worth 10-20 hp for all of the headaches that it would cause, plus I don't want to be 120 miles out in the desert with an over heating bitch...capish?

with a thermostat. I swear by them. I also had a radiator built for the Elky by the guy that does them for most of the NASCAR teams, Cross flow 1" tubes, aluminum.

for now I will leave it as is. I have got to get cracking on the new cab corners and body work, I am getting sick of looking at that ugliness sitting in the garage. I am going to paint her 'high-lite blue pearl', I was going to do cammo but the wife said she wouldn't ride in it if I did that....hmmmmm....lol

Maybe consider putting an electric fan on the front of the radiator, if your electrical can handle it. My dad rebuilt an old dodge motorhome and we had to put the electric fan on front to boost the cooling at times 'cause it tended to heat up goin uphill. My best friend in high school also used a similar setup on his '67 Bronco to help out during long idle times.

Nothing is as risky as certain failure.

I think my neighbors can hear lumpy, I turned the bass all the way up and the volume to 90 so I could experience the open headers.
