awwesome. thanks for the info. I did some research and found out the w/p pulley was pressed on so I removed my fan before a 670 mile drive this past weekend. I averaged 20.5 mpg with 4.10s when taking both directions into account!

Really appreciate the city drivng info wrt the temps. I have a DSP and have changed my low speed settings to 185 and my high speed settings to 195. I'll post up when I get a chance to test it.

Just wanted to comment on this. The Viper fan does not draw that much power. On its low setting it is more than enough to keep the truck cool. Running it on High is way over kill and can draw some current but it isn't that bad.
For the most part the fan only runs when you are stopped at a light or sitting in traffic.
