Installed electric fan from early 90's Taurus. Barely got it to clear water pump. Then my ******* self forgot to put the bolts back in the water pump. Started her up. Whing! Now I've got two bolts in there. I'll have to buy more bolts tomorrow.

Btw the fan fits perfectly into the radiator, the sides of the plastic shroud slide right into the space between the fins and the end caps. All I had to secure was the top with a few zip ties.

I'm going to wire it up properly with a thermal switch next weekend. Maybe two thermal switches, the low comes on at 210, with the high at like 215? And the high comes on with the a/c, too? With a switch to turn them both on or off manually... I like it.

Any one think it would be hard to do a toggle switch for heat, toggle switch for defrost. I never use Ac so I would worry about that.should add that it's a limited 96 so it's all electronic.

Anyone want/need any 5.9 parts? Just crashed mine enough that it's a write-off, but the interior's still in good shape and same with the front end. Cracked one of the rims, but the other 3 + spare are good too.

Sad to see it gone... but I'd rather its good parts go to fellow Jeepers than rot in a junkyard

Hows the front grille?

I'm in QC, so not too far if you're willing to ship!

Well, yesterday anyhow.

Cleaned the interior. Cleaned around engine. Tried putting in new lights but the little sockets that the posts go on are not locking. Set off the alarm. Changed lift gate struts.

How hard was it to install new bumpstops? Need to replace mine as well. Mine has a hard time going into 4-low, likes to grind but not engage.

Well, my day started out kind of ****ty. Woke up at 7, drove 40 minutes to school only to find out there's no classes today. I guess we had a 4 day weekend that I thought was only 3 days. Wtf?

But then, my two new wheels from 4 wheel parts showed up, since two of mine were dented. Well, I had the package with the dented wheels right outside my garage, expecting brown santa to take them when he delivered my new ones. Well, he didnt. So it looks like I got 2 free dented wheels.
