New Fan Cowl or Elec. Fan?

When driving, my CJ5 with a 304 runs right at 190 degrees. I rarly have it creep up except when going slowly or idling (using the air tools) in which case it heats up to 230 degrees where I will get in and drive it around for a while. It's obvious that I need better airflow through my radiator as the temp drops almost immediatly when I get going.

Now I could put in a new cowl as I have none, but the only one I could find cost $110. Or I could put in a 16" Flex-a-lite pusher to augment the engine fan when going slow for $99.

What does everybody think?
