Definately do not run a switch to the cab. You'll forget to turn it on or off and overheat or drain your battery.

Remember the clutch fan is always spinning as long as your engine is running. Just wire it up to a 30amp+ relay that's hot when the truck is on. Let it spin all the time and you don't have to deal with any temp sensors that could break.

Don't expect a huge increase on the top end - you'll feel the biggest difference up to about 45 mph. After that, there is enough air pushing through the radiator that your fan isn't doing anything else. On the belt fan, the clutch disengages and the fan just free spins.
