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.

Yeah, the fan blade seems cheaper, but their clutch is like 3 times more expensive. This was the fan blade the website found. Look right? Mopar Parts for Dodge, Chrysler and Jeep: MoparPartsAmerica

Just found a Jeep dealer that carries the DC Part Number 52079984AA Fan part. $72. Hopefully this will do it.

You can get the clutch local, and the fan blade through that website. That's what I plan to do if my dealers don't have one readily available. But the one at that dealer will do it!

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.

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.

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.

Hey, is there any issue with having the electric fan operational while having the mechanical fan? Kinda like a backup system?

Nope. I doubt they'll both kick on at the same time but the i6s with tow package should have come with both.
