In this video, 1AAuto shows you how to replace a front engine mounted radiator fan clutch on an 80s GM Truck. This process is the same for many fan clutches that mount to the front of the water pump with 4 bolts.

Hey guys, Justin here with The Four Lazy J’s. In this video I review my Patriot Tires Torque mud terrains. The same ones you find on that Diesel Brothers tv show on Discovery. I first purchased my Ram 2500 with the cummins back in December of 2015. Shortly after that I put the leveling kit on it and started shopping for aftermarket wheels and tires. I first looked into the Toyo Open Country tires then somehow I stumbled upon these. Being the researcher that I am, I started to gather as much information on Patriot Tires as I could (which wasn’t much truthfully.) I had heard that they were made specifically for larger and heavier trucks. So I decided that they were competitively priced which made it worth a shot. I had BFG all terrains on my old half ton and had to replace them about every 30,000 miles. That kid of set the standard for me. Now that I have 20,000 miles on the Patriots, they seem as if they could at least go another 20,000 with ease. It must be true that they are built with a much sturdier compound. I have used them in deep nasty much and sharp jagged rocks out hunting and they do what they say they would do, work and hold up. I can honestly say that I am a believer. I took a chance on these things and I would buy another set in a heart beat. There is still a lack of information on these tires and feel like if they could get that ironed out, they could be a contender in the off road tire market. I hope you enjoyed this and thanks for watching!

I picked up some new truck tires and so far I’m pretty impressed with them both in terms of looks and functionality. There are Federal Couragia M/T tires sized 35×12.5R17 and they replaced my old 37’s. The only complaint I have is the increase in road noise but that’s to be expected with an aggressive tread such as this. It’s really not that big a deal at all. Check them out if you’re looking for something similar.
