Fan swap questions?
On the GC ZJ, I have read several post and articles of people swapping out the clutch fan for a fan out of a ford 3.8 Taurus which the fan mounts on the radiator clips and only needs little mod to fit. This is a 2 speed fan. What I am not understanding is this.
They say the fan draws 40 amps. Thats a lot of juice. I have seen fans that claim to push 2800 cfm and only draw 14 amps. How can this fan draw so much?
Also wouldn't you kill your electrical system if you ran aux lights, fan, stereo and headlights all at once?
Has anyone done this in the hotter climates in the west? I live in the phoenix area, I am thinking about this, but want to make sure it is a good idea.
