    Make the engine fan always on full lock? I like the sound that the fan makes when you first turn on the truck. Is it possible to make the fan spin at engine rpm all the time?

    Step 3: place CD in CD player
    Step 4: Play CD

    Problem solved

    Not as many as the 98..
    Just go with a set of electric fans if you want the fans on all the time.

    CAN it be done? Yes, with a little work. SHOULD it be done? No, because it causes excessive load on the engine and will affect your fuel economy as well as longevity.

    mount a metal flex fan. like this , that one isnt made for our trucks, just an example. i dont think one they make one for our trucks but dont think it would be hard to accomplish. anyone who builds motors knows how well a flex fan works. i like the idea.

    this is one of the weirdest mod ideas i've ever heard..why would you want to do this, and why would you like the extra noise & wear associated with it?

    I agree, but tons of people want there trucks exhaust louder, even spend money on headers and such, for minimal gains, just more noise.
