Unless parts have been left where they are exposed to crap they shouldn't be exposed to .
And if it was one fan I would be with awesomeness but I know of at least 4 that have failed.
The new clutch design doesn't have rubber and is directly bolted on
So what does that tell you
So I guess they found a way to age the rubber to see if it would fail after truck sits or heated and cooled for several years
And you also have a lot of maybes
I for one will remove and bolt every fan I come across because it's no fun leaving a truck where it failed.
It's almost like you...
Well you know are government they aren't the quickest or the smartest bunch especially if it cost money they can't put in their pockets.
But like I said if your so in love with the rubber keep it ! I am not forcing you to remove it.
