How big of a electric fan can you put on a 2.5, will a 14 inch fit? a 16 inch?

nice write up! I will surely be doing this ASAP! Those "BeCOOL" and "FLEXaLITE" ones seem to be way over priced!

Is the LED relay also a 50A Bosch or do you need to use a different one?

if its just powering the LED only then it can be a standard auto relay.

Thanks for the reply Que89YJ.
What size wire did you use? Would 8AWG be too thin?

Will it work?

Will this fan be enough to cool a 5.7 with a TPI?

Yes 8 guage will work and yes, just make sure you wire in the high speed switch. Im not sure if the low speed would do it on a hot day with the 5.7L but plenty of racers use it on the 350.

I picked up this stuff at the pull-a-part this afternoon. My buddy and I both got a Taurus fan and a 50 amp relay out of a Volvo. I believe it was a '94 760. We tested the fans and the relays when we got home and everything worked. I spent $20.16 for the fan and the relay.

All I need now is a thermostat, sensor probe, circuit breaker, wire and a switch. I only plan on using the low speed for now.

I also found this on Amazon. It might be too cheap but I only want to use the probe and thermostat:

Found this:

Looks promising. I would like to pick up something at the local autoparts stores but I've had trouble finding stuff online.

Well I started working on my fan swap and I ran into a snag. It seems I'm having some fitment issues. I've seen others who were able to fit the fan in with next to no space but it fit. I wonder if I need to swap in a cherokee water pump. I have a pulley and old pump at home.

I can still trim the shroud on the fan to get a little more clearance. The main issue is the main water pump shaft. I could always trim it down.

Any ideas?

From the research that I've done, the XJ water pump actually spins in the opposite direction. If you find one that doesn't, post it up.

You may be right, but the XJ water pumps I've seen, I have an '89 by the way, don't have the clutch fan attached to them. That's what makes them skinnier. This one looks like it did.
