All 01+ v8s have a hydraulic fan driven off the power steering pump.

Typing on phones sucks.

Yes, thanks for the correction, hydraulic fan, that's what I meant. Might be time to go back and study wjjeeps.com.

I might be all wet, but in the MJ/ XJ world guys will remove the mechanical fan and replace them with an electric duel ford Taurus fan. They fit right in.. Their motive is to gain back the power the engine used to run the fan. I imagine they'd be the same way in the WJ.

Yes! Pictures! Also, how can I test my electric fan to make sure it's working alright? What circumstances does it need to kick on?

It should always turn on when the A/C is on (it might take a few seconds after hitting the button).

Alright, pretty sure I need a new relay then. On another note, I'm unable to remove my itch fan, the belt just slips on the water pump and I can't break the nut Loose.

If you remove the hyd fan you will probably get codes unless you can fool the jeep in thinking its still there.
