I have 2 llys neither of which overheat while towing or any other time, even with all the llys i've seen in this area i've yet to come arcoss a overheater. Im not saying the arent out there because enough folks do have issues with it im just trying to say i beleive they are a little bit more few and far between than some folks would like any one to beleive. JMHO
