Excellent Fan and Increased Performance

I put this on my 2001 Jeep Wrangler Sport 6cyl after it starting overheating this summer in Atlanta traffic. The first thing I noticed was it seems to accelerate quicker and the gas mileage increased. I'm getting about 30-40 more miles per tank which doesn't sound like much to most people, but for a Jeep that is a ton since it gets horrible gas mileage anyway. Installation was easy, picked it up in the afternoon and had it installed a few hours later. It has not overheated since I installed the fan and AC blows nice and cold while sitting in traffic for hours at a time.
