I've driven my Rampside long distances both ways and yes, it did run cooler 
with the engine lid off but it also cooled adequately with the lid on.  It 
did run quite hot with the lid on during a steep mountain climb going to 
South Lake Tahoe on a hot summer day.  You'll never find any mountains of 
that size anywhere near Iowa.
