Quick question.

Would it be smarter to replace the fan clutch or upgrade to electric fans?

I don't know what's smarter, but electric are usually more effecient and take up less space. They are also quieter and don't take away any horsepower.

I just put a flex a lite on my cj5. I had overheating issues before but not anymore. It used to overheat on cool days while idling. After the fan was installed I drove it when it was 110 outside, got it warm and let it idle in the sun and it started to cool down. I never get over200 now. Couldn't be more impressed with it. Very simple to install as well.

Can you give me details on install and where did you purchase the fans?

I cut a piece of aluminum to fit over the radiator as a shrowd, and a hole for the fan itself, I then bolted the fan to said shrowd and bolted the shrowd to the radiator. I don't know what the stock radiator looks like, but my aftermarket had some extra holes for 9/16 bolts to use for the shrowd. $45 for the aluminum and I believe 50 or so for the fan and wiring on ebay.
