At this point the fan uses less electricity meaning less drain on the alternator, stealing less hp from the motor. The same happens with clutch fans, but they are heavier and rob more horsepower.

the fan has always been a little on the loud side but it has the severe duty fan clutch due to the 4wheel drive, 4:10 gears, tow package and z71 suspension. so my question is can i get away with a lighter duty fan clutch is it time to replace the original fan and how are those of you with electric fans liking them?
