    Because of the way the air is routed to the radiator of the newer Chevy Silverado once a Western Plow is in the full up position the blade stops most the air from reaching the Radiator.

    The solution is partially lower the blade to allow more air to reach the radiator when travelling from job to job.

    I just had a brand new western 8' installed last week on my 05 F250. Was concerned about how hot it would run since it was a good 15 mile drive home from the shop.

    Had no problems. Fully raised she stayed within normal limits driving highway speeds of 40-55. I kept it under 60 the whole way home. Didnt have any problems. About half way home though I lowered the blade about 1/3 down, to see if that cause it to overheat and still nothing.

    PS: I did get the FX and snow prep package on my truck so that may have something to do with it, dunno. Good thing is, I dont have to worry about it overheating, atleast not yet (knock, knock, knocK)

    Good luck.

    IIRC there is a TSB for an upgraded fan clutch on GM Snow plow prepped trucks.....Ask your dealer. I had mine replaced and no problems to date..Do a search and you will find the TSB number..
