    Can someone recommend an aux. fan to put in front of the condensor? In Texas, sitting with the truck idling doesn't get enough air across the condensor to cool it down - about the ONLY disadvangage of an engine put in the way it should be (non-traverse!) and I hate having to put the truck in neutral to rev the engine.

    You could install a electric radiator fan and switch it on when you're going slow or stopped.

    What temp does it run up to. I have sat for over an hour with mine in 105 degree heat and ac going and the highest temp was 195. I do agree that it would be nice to put an aux fan with a switch though. I have done that some years back on other trucks I have had.

    It's the air flow over the condensor not being enough at a idle to get the AC real cold. If I rev the engine, thereby increasing the airflow, the AC cools right down, and I have NO issues with the AC while moving, even a little.
