Electric Fan and wheeling???

Hey guys looking to do some performance mods to the ranger and wanted some opinions on an e-fan. Is it worth it??? The truck sees water and trails, ive heard good and bad things about em,but wanted to see how many people that wheel actually have them.

I ran one on my 3.0 and kevooo ran one on his 4.0. Needless to say we have stock fans again. It overheats the transmission AND engine when offroading. My tranny temps were up at 200, now they sit at 165 when offroad. I did several tests of this, and all were the same.

Kevooo could barely put his truck in 4x4 before it started overheating. He does not have a tranny gauge, but the engine WAS overheating.

Now with stock fans we both have no problems.
