    You will want to replace your fan clutch. Its very easy, no wiring, or having to change fluids of any kind. Go to your nearest auto parts store and get a extreme duty fan clutch for your truck. That will take care of the issue. Now that doesn't mean you can put the plow on when its 90* outside either, but you wont have a issue during the winter.

    You are going to have to take the top half of the fan shroud off, then I believe its 4 bolts that take it off of the water pump, then 4 bolts to unbolt the fan, and then set the whole thing back in and bolt it back up.
