Fan shroud after AX15

I just finished the AX15,NP231,8.8 install and when I started the enginei i noticed the fan not moving with the engine running. I shut it off and saw the fan rubbing on the lower part of the shroud. When I did the swap out I tucked the belly back up (it had 2"spacers) but I thought it was not big deal because it was going back to stock configuration.

I removed the shroud and noted the fan clutch was parallel to the radiator and about a 1/2 Ito 3/4 inch from the radiator but the fan looked low on the radiator. The mounting looks to be stock but I don't know being family new to jeeps

Any ideas????

Did the jeep have a body lift on it when you purchased,if so the shroud may have been relocated when it was installed

I don't think the previous owner lifted the body by looking at the mounts

just relocate the fan shroud lower (or higher) on the radiator so it will clear the fan.

I probably will but it just bothers me that all is stock in the mount department and something is off somewhere causing the fan to rub the bottom of the shroud. I think I might look at the motor mounts a little closer although yesterday when I took a quick peak at them they seamed to look OK

If you snap a few pics of the mounts (engine & body) we can tell what you have. I had to relocate my shroud after my 1" body lift.

Stock indeed. I would just try to relocate the shroud like said above.
