E-Fan Swap

I have a 2006 Jeep Liberty 16" electric fan. I think the part number is 55037659AB. I can't find the CFM for it. I am thinking of either replacing the clutch fan or adding the electric fan in addition to the clutch fan in my truck. About once a year I pull a 29ft camper (about 5,000lb) for a few thousand miles. The truck tends to overheat when I am at high altitudes and pulling the camper on steep inclines.

If I replace the clutch fan with this electric fan, am I going to have overheating issues? If yes, would just adding the electric fan on and keeping the clutch do anything at all? Would I be better off just adding a small transmission radiator and fan to the transmission?

I am trying to figure out if I can make use of a free electric fan.

I have 2007 RAM 1500 5.7L. It has an AEM CAI, cat back flowmaster exhaust and a bully dog chip.

At some point this year or maybe next, I'll replace the exhaust headers. Some of the screws have rusted out and broke. When I get around to fixing them, I'll replace the headers too.

...keeping that tranny temp down especially when pulling a load will help save the engine and the tranny...

If the fan can push air, mount a HD trans cooler and the fan in front of it to cool the trans and move more air through the radiator.
