Hi all - I've not visited here for a while, but still have my 96 k1500 Burb. Has 140k miles. Outside of a bad power steering hose last year, it still runs pretty good. As my youngest kids go off to college, it and my 2002 Rendezvous will be getting merged into one vehicle soon. (Maybe a ML350 or Jeep equivalent?)

Anyway, I just did a small upgrade that I've been wanting to do for a while - change the original steel 5-blade fan for the newer 11-blade fan that came from '97 onwards. It has a steel center, but the blades are plastic. Bolts up to the original clutch exactly as the original fan did. It is *much* quieter than the 5-blade fan and moves more air too.

This one came from a truck in a Pick-N-Pull wrecking yard, for the princely sum of $12. I highly recommend the mod for pre-'97 GMT 400s.
