Since the ic blocks some air already my guess is that the addition of the plow blade decreases the flow enough to cause temps to rise.
I had it on today on highway and with blade about 1/2 way up it was ok. I can live with that.
I'm still very impressed by the stability and strength of this set up. It really feels as if its barely there.
One thing I'm wondering: is there a way to set a boss blade to perfect center? I can get it close but its always a little off to one side or the other. I would think there should be a way to get perfect center no?
Intercooler? Is your truck supercharged or turbo charged? If not, thats an AC Condensor or Trans Cooler and its not really blocking anything to the radiator (to make a difference).
While driving, especially on the highway, are you angling the blade to one side or keeping it straight? The plow will force the air up and over your truck if left straight which will cause the temps to rise. Also, with it being 60* that will make a difference as well.
Love the truck, those Rock Warriors look amazing in that color IMO.
