When i hit the gas the fan runs equal to the rpms. Not sure if this is a dodge thing or if i need a new fan clutch. Any ideas would be great! Thanks

can you spin the fan with the engine off? if not your clutch is frozen on your fan.

Not sure but your fan should be thermostatically controlled, the clutch shouldn't engage the fan until you reach a higher temperature, it will free wheel slowly while your engine is running but it shouldn't spin the same RPM as the engine until the thermostat tells it to, I would check that out.
