I'm seriously considering it as I have doen with past trucks i've owned. Probably have to wait a lil bit tho cause i'm pretty sure the wife is getting a little po'd about all the "little" things I have done with the truck so far. Had one bad eperiance once with an electric fan howevere that some how loosened up and damaged the radiator enough that I had to replace it a year later.

If you used the ties that run through the fins, I know exactly what happened. I stopped using that method and started fabricating brackets instead.

I dont have an electric on the Ram but I had Flex-a-Lite Black Magic fan on my Dakota 4x4 and loved it. Kept the truck cooler and there was a slight mileage increase.
