e-fan hookup question

I am hooking up a electric fan on my 88YJ 2.5L DD. Is there a hot wire under the hood anywhere that is only hot while my key is on? Or am I going to have to drill and run through the firewall? If I have to drill though my firewall I may just hook up a manual switch just in case I ever do go through deep water.

most e fans draw a fair amount of power so you will almost certainly need a relay, heavier wire, some sort of switch and normally a temp sensor so it only comes on when needed.

Are you having cooling problems now?

I don't know the differences between a '88, and a '94. But on mine, I'm pretty sure that there is in the PCM. Its been about 10 years since I installed mine. Here's a schematic that might help you with the wiring:
