    why you want it to run continuously? It will run when needed, don't worry.

    Well, I know this engine runs hot, whether is suppose to or not. People talk about it on the trails. With the head problems this thing has I just figured the cooler the better. Probably not going to change the core engine temp with a fan but at the very least shed some of the heat out of the engine compartment. I bet I could do a 6lb. Pot roast under the hood in 34min!

    You could only put on hood louvers to help reduce heat. In wisconsin I believe the weather is simillar from what we get here, and honnestly I would not worry about it, unless you get real hot temperature in the summer and wheel hard during this time.

    to answer you question, you could bypass the hi-speed relay with a switch.

    I've talked with Eddie before about the fan running and honestly I don't know if it runs all the time or not. I never pay attention. I don't remember if he said his does or doesn't though.

    The fans are electric and only run when needed, although that seems to be more often than not. It also has two speeds. You can really here it humming sometimes..

    You can also get a programmer to switch the fan in and back to default.

“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
