I'd like to hear everyones opinion of electric fans replaceing the stock fan. I know there are good points and bad points to both electric and clutch fans.

From what I've read and seen of my friends CJ7 electric fans work pretty good for crawling. Anyone here ever go on long road trips with an electric set up?

I love eclectric fans. They are way cool. Work great in every condition. I like them because there are times I am in very deep water and sure don't need more water getting sprayed off the fan. Besides I broke a fan blade off in deep water and it did a lot of damage. Never ran a belt drive fan since.

I've got an electric fan on my Jeep and it's great. I've got a thermostat on mine that turns it on and off as needed. I made a 4400 mile road trip a while back and it worked great.
