    I use the Flex-A-Lite BlackMagic M150 electric on my 350 with a 3row. I have 0 cooling issues. I am electric only too! Even in the CentralValley heat during summer at 105 cruzin down a trail or fire road my rig never gets above 200. On the hwy in the summer it runs at 190-195. The M150 was the highest rated for cfm 2800cfm for a single puller is good!
    It works and i'm likin it!

    Yes I do shut it off when in water or goin down the hwy.
    I originally was going to run both and I did for almost a year and a half. I was oly turning the electric on during summer on the trails. So I wanted to test with out the mecanical fan and took it off. I don't plan on putting the mecanical fan back on but i do carry it with me on long trail rides as a backup just incase the electric fails.
