Go to the boneyard and look at the trucks with 6's in them, particularly if you can find a heavy duty truck. They'll have the best system (large diameter, multi-blade steel fan and shroud to fit) that was designed at the factory to provide maximum cooling. If you can find one with a fan clutch, so much the better. You said the motor heated up on the freeway, so what I'm suggesting wouldn't necessarily help on the freeway, but it will sure work around town better than what you have now. I wouldn't install a flex fan on anything. They're next to worthless in my opinion.
