I would suggest first off to replace the stock fan with a good quality    
flex fan. Usually this will cure a "running warm" situation if all else is 
OK. I'm not a big fan of going all electric. Haven't had to yet. 
Especially if your vehicle has the stock electrical system. If you've 
already rewired the vehicle and have a high output alternator by all means 
wire it up, and use relays for all the fans...
