4th gens already have an electric fan, but people have been using various electric fans after taking off the mechanical fan (I think MarkIII etc). I would wait till u get the DS Predator so you can adjust the fan settings before doing so. just my opinion though

The 4G's R/T came with factory 4.10's so if you are concerned about your warranty then having the dealership put those in will prob keep your warranty intact. Sure it will cost a pretty penny vs aftermarket.

E-Fan are popular for 3G's since we don't have one. Have read 4G members removing the clutch fan but not replacing the e-fan.

Haven't had any problems with leaking after using a torque wrench, originally tried to crank the clamps by hand but that didn't get them near tight enough. But like I said earlier you can save a good amount of coin going the other route, close to $100 depending where you get your work done.

I didnt even know I had an electric fan. All I saw was the mechanical fan. Is it a pull type elctric? Yes Kay9 Im very worried about the warrenty ha I went 5 years with no warrenty and i went threw 2 motors and 4 trans. I dont want to do that again. thanks mopar thats good food for thought. I will do that. And wyguy I called the muffler shop that i usually have do my mufflers and they said that they would do it for 200 plus they wouldnt charge to remove my resonaters. So when i get on shore thats what im doing.

what made you get rid of it bro? sounds like that thing was a straight BEAST! itll be hard to do anything to your new truck without risking voiding the warranty... there is only so much you can do and everyone has already stated it

I had my 14" Magnaflow welded on by the local shop, I would inspect after they are done with it, and they also reccommend spraying the welds afterwards with High Temp Spray from Autozone/Advance Auto Parts....
