Up to now I have enjoyed the "Automatic In Cab Heating" system. Now that we are seeing 80 degrees I am wondering what people are doing to cool things down. I hate duct tape but.......

Total investment into the radiator switch is $250.00. new jeep grand cherokee radiator with 3 electric fans, weatherpak connectors, 4- 1 7/5" roll bar clamps, 2 1/2" aluminum angle iron, 1" aluminum angle iron, rubber grommets and some 14 gauge wire. 2 of the fans work like the stock fans did and the third center fan is on a manual switch for when we are sitting still in it and feeling a heat from the radiator behind us.

If you use the stock radiator you are going to have to come up with a way to fill it up and remove the air bubbles which will accumulate in it.
What about reversing the polarity on fans to push not pull? May need to flip blades over...not sure..just something I was thinking about for mine...seems like it would work plus it blow dirt out of radiator, kill 2 birds with 1 stone...any thoughts???
I don't believe that will work. In theory you could move the fans to the other side of the radiator or buy pusher fans but you will constantly be fighting the normal flow of air traveling thru the radiator from your forward travel, so you would be fighting the air flow across the radiator and probably overheat.
Good point on fight the air flow! Maybe adding vents on the hood scoop?
