    I have done it on mine. I didnt really notice any power or mpg increase. I do love that it doesnt roar anymore on start ups. A/C gets cold quicker too.

    Most times, the engine runs a little hotter unless the fan has a shroud that is the full size of the radiator.

    Wish I could find it, but I remember seeing a how-to using the existing shroud as the fan mount. He had no cooling problems in city stop-n-go or trail crawling.

    You wont notice a temp change on the temp gauge. it will remain in the center from 125*, to about 220*. PD3 tested one on his truck, and found his operating temps were about 15* higher than normal.

    I dont see why LCE's wouldn't fit, the 2TR has the same fan shroud/radiator as the 4.0, doesn't it?
