    Iím using 30mm Yeah Racing fans they move a ton more air but require mounting modification. Theyíre loud as well. Iím happy with the change and kind of like the noise.

    A lot of times you can clean those fans with contact cleaner, blow dry with 15 psi compressed air, and then power up and lube with a little silicon spray. I do all mine that way, and I've had most of my fans (from my other trucks) for years.
    Life's to short to be a sour puss.
