The Sequoia has a total of 2 engine fans. One belt driven behind the radiator, and one electric in front of the A/C condensor, adjacent to the aux tranny cooler.

I believe both the belt and electric fans in the Jeep are adjacent to each other, behind the radiator.

Haha...when I tell people about the good deal we got on our TM, I often neglect to mention that the purchase inspired the additional purchase of the TV. Ooops.

Well tow ratings and trans coolers have been covered but lubrication could use some more coverage. Transfer case,engine oil, differential oil, transmission oil, and even power steering oil should also be considered when using a vehicle for towing. My boss told me about a web site that is a forum on lubrication. This is an EXCELLENT site. The first time I spent two hours on it. www.bobistheoilguy.com
If your into maintenance you'll love this site. Robert

A little off subject. What PopBeavers said is worth noting. Today we were coming back from a hike on Ebbetts Pass Hwy 4 in California. Driving our little car and a couple driving a 30 foot or more class A motor home was just starting up the pass. I doubt he made it. The road is only a lane and half wide. No center line. There are grades exceeding I would guess 10% with hair pin curves. The peak of the pass is 8,500 feet. It is a lot worse than Sonora Pass.

It is always a good idea to check with locals before you attempt a high mountain pass that you are not familiar with and that is not a major highway.

We just got back from a trip going from sea level to over 7000 feet and back, and let me tell you all, I was glad to have been towing with our Chevy 1500 on this trip. I feel so safe towing the TM both up and down the mountains with this truck. On the way home, I slipped it down into 2nd gear and hardly had to use the brakes (it wasn't that steep, just a long, long downward descent).

Living where we do, just about every year we have to climb that high up and descend that far down to go where we want to camp. I can't even imagine towing our 2720 on our trips without our truck. Even just crossing over Highway 17 between here and San Jose, it's a steep climb.

The worst part is going downhill. I never feel like I have "the tail wagging the dog".

California is full of mountains. That's where we like to go, and I don't think we'd feel safe without our tow vehicle being as big and powerful as it is (and it's really not that big, compared to some others).
