Haha, you mean when it turns into a fan clutch, water pump, hoses, thermostat, and thermostat housing? Might as well...

Niner with an efan but turned into transmission lines, radiator, and clamps. Luckily everything else is ok. Also blew lower hose off twice.

How did the lower hose blow off, twice? Is there a high flow extreme death defying water pump out there no ones brought to my attention?

Yeah, that'll happen. I'm just jealous because you have an e-fan and I don't. Too lazy to swap mine out, clutch fans workin like a champ, just hate the fan sounding like a jet liner...

When you're considering buying a WJ and have a nightmare that your ZJ becomes possessed and runs you down.
