lol, they can order it from a warehouse or call other dealers in the area.
Jeep Parts - MoparPartsAmerica.com They will be able to get it for you (likely cheaper). But some members have reported bad luck dealing with them. I've ordered countless things from them since 2008, and just ordered and received a few more this past Wednesday so take it for what it's worth. I wouldn't hesitate to order from them again, but some people stay away.
Well all parts attached and truck tested. I ran it for 25 minutes in place, steady as a rock. When I tested after the hose and thermostat change it took less then 10 minutes before heating issue. The truck runs smooth and has significant air volume...much more then I ever noticed before.
Additional note about installation. Taking the accesory belt helps. Also, turning the fan so that the larger gap between blades is facing upwards also made things easier. Pulling on the shroud defintiely helps. I also used Blue Lock Tite on the bolts for the fan and the clutch. Figured it would ensure it stays on. As for tightening the clutch to the shaft, defintiely have a slim tool tighten with. Otherwie pretty simple.
Thanks again for the excellent idea. I'll note how things work after driving it a bit.
wow that was quick. My efan went out sometime in november and i still haven't gotten to this yet aha. Glad it worked out for the best for you! Can't wait to finish all my other projects and get this done on my own.
It was fairly easy to do. The hardest part is getting it into the area. Lots of pulling on the shroud and twisting the unit to get it t slip in. The other tricky art was tightening it. Not having the exact tool to tighten I first used a plumbing tool normally used to tighten drain ctaches. Then once it got to the end I used a very small pipe wrench on the nut and 1/2 wrench on one of the bolts of the pulley the botl comes out of. This allowed me to push in both directions. If you don't do this the pully/blt starts to turn and you can't completely tighten it. When I do this to my brothers Grand Cherokee it will take even less time, 30 minutes tops!
Thanks again for all your help. If your ever in the Chicago area ping me, I owe a good drink! The next thing to look for are new shocks. I've decided to keep this thing for another 100k.
alright guys, i have a bit of a dilemma. i'm from cedar rapids, iowa but am in las vegas now with my 2000 GC with the 4.0 and pretty sure the relay just went out on my cooling fan. i have no tools with me...can anyone tell me exactly what i'm going to need to swap the relay out? your help is greatly appreciated!!!
Sorry dude, I went straight to the mechanical solution. Once you have the parts all you need is a 1/2 inch for the small bolts and a large wrench for the nut of the clutch. Not sure what size it is. You could do this with 1.5 hours at worst. No other mods required. My 2 cents...
As for my truck, drivien it several times into the city, let is sit there and run, all works just fine.
