See if you can find this part number on it 5300 0015. If so then it is for a cherokee.
Part number should be 5200 4214-1. And the ahroud completely encases the fan so you can not see it from above like your can be in your picture.
Well this shroud came right from the dlr. They looked it up and said that was the one I needed. The 4cyl is bigger and encases the fan totaly. I have the 6cyl.
I think its the new 7 blade fan making it look bigger. Not sure why but the 5 blade fan blades I had on there before were bigger. Not sure if that will hurt things or not. The yard that I got this from said it was off a 93 6cyl wrangler.
Not sure why Jeep would use a 5 and a 7 blade fan on these things. It does seem to be pulling more air and pulling it the right way. I guess only time will tell.
