    Will be doing a 3 inch body lift soon on my 2000 Denali, after going through the forums, it seems some people have cooling issues with the regular fan because the radiator is raised with the body and the fan isn't.

    I assume the best solution is an e fan conversion. id prefer to source as much as possible from the local pick and pull. What are the best fans to pull, and what other parts do I need, and also how should I mount the fans.

    Its not the fan being farther away from the radiator, it's the lower fan shroud that has to be removed or relocated. I had a 99 Tahoe with a 3" b/l, no lower shroud. Normal driving it was fine, but trying to go slow wheeling the temp would slowly creep up. Would cool down soon as got some speed up on the road. There is a right up on MarkVIII fans in one of the other sections. But any decent size fan will work. There are many ways to mount it, but quick an easy are push pin type thingy's for a universal tranny cooler. Should be able to get them at any parts store.
