Do it right the first time. Use one of these, they make them for 1.5" and 1.75" hoses.

This may be a dumb question that has already been covered but..... I keep seeing people talking about buying relays, fuses, temp sensor, etc...for the install. Why can't you just pull the needed items from the donar Taurus? I'm definitely a electrophobe when it comes to electrical stuff but I would like to do this to my 2.5 on the cheap/easy. It seems to me that the stuff needed for it to run right should be on the Taurus (follow the wires)?. Someone set me straight.

more than likely, the taurus uses an ECU controlled system and the wires that power the fan arnt as "simple" as taking 1 wire from the batt, another from the switch, and rigging a relay.

The relay SEEMs complex, but its VERY simple. I didnt read all 8 pages, but just get a thermo-controlled trigger for the fans and forget em! Thats what ill be doing

Cliff notes: tracing the wires/relays/etc that control the factory setup is FAR more complicated than a 4 wire relay...

After thinking about it, I realized it was probably going to the ECU and yes, just easier to go find a relay elsewhere. Went to the junkyard this weekend and found plenty of fans and plenty of relays. Oh yeah, I read on here somewhere about Cadillacs having the waterproof relays and that is right also. I got several out of a Caddy, all I know is it was a "northstar?". I love the junkyard..... I recommend them to anyone.

Over the last year my wj has been plagued with cooling problems due to the relay and fan motor so I am really leaning towards doing a taurus fan set up on it but after tons of searching I still cannot find anyone that has put a taurus fan in a 4.0 wj. Does anyone know if the taurus fan will fit in my wj?

The 70-amp relay will handle any efan. Get the socket too, makes install easy.

I got my relays out of a Cadillac at the junkyard while I was getting my taurus fan. I got three of them in case one didn't work. They were about $2 a piece I think. They were the heavy duty water proof ones. I don't know how much Amperage they are meant for but I think one was for the e-fan on the cadillac and they all had the same part #. My fan is working great. Oh yeah, they only have 4 wires on the plug, but five terminals inside the relay so I did have to rob a wire out of another plug to make a relay with the five wires. I would recommend the junkard relays before spending a bunch of money on new one(s).

Go to this thread : http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f8/li...s-50-a-962825/
They are talking about junkyard relays. There is a pic of the type relay I am using from a Caddilac. The one that comes with the bracket. Working fine for me and was cheap.

I orded my relay for $10 thanks though! I just need a switch not to be able to turn on high. When I turn on high does low have to turn off?

yes, you will smoke the fan motor if you apply voltage to low and high at the same time.
