Way to go, Chad. It looks gorgeous.
But let me get this straight - you're not going to paint the master cylinder?

Chad, is this the same Jeep that was featured in a thread a few weeks back with a cooling problem?

No flames,but this thing sees 95% trail duty. It was $500 for a Detroit Locker, or $20 for the mini spool. Until that break (these axles were under my scrambler for 2 years) there has been no problems except for sounding like a happy seal turning a corner on pavement. I'd like to go to a true hi 9 differential with a Detroit, but they are too pricey...

Yes. The Taurus fan fixed it in one fell swoop. Idling for extended periods would bring it down to 160, and it never got above 190 the whole day. It was around 85 most of the day for an ambient temp. I'm now a firm believer in the Taurus fan!!!

I'm a second there... when my brother's "race" car that sees alot of street use ran out of space for it's existing Mark VIII fan with a supercharger install we went to a taurus fan which is fairly compact and really keeps things cool.

What are you using to switch the fan?

I am using a Napa ST-85 85 amp continuous duty relay with an on off switch connected to an ignition on source as the control circuit. there is also an in-line fuse placed between the battery and the relay. I may eventually hook up a circuit that uses a thermostat to control the low speed, then manually switch to high, but for now, I am out of $$$ and time. I want to wheel it a lot more as soon as I get a new axle shaft splined...
