    Ok so I put a Boss truck side on my dads 2002 ram 1500 (going to get a 7.6 sport duty) well after I got everything installed I hooked up my straight 8 on it to see if everything would work right so it did made the truck sag pretty good. So I took it for a spin and going about 45-50 MPH for 6 or so miles I watched the heat go up and as she got close to the top I pulled over. I tried diff. heights and angles and no diff. I know a 8 will kill that truck but i doubt this problem will go away with a 7.6. I thought about getting a bigger fan maybe? It has a 360 in it. Any thoughts from anyone?
