That's because they were replaced with and electric fan that replaced it. If you have the tow package you might have both, but I've only ever found the two on the 4.7's at the wreckers so far. Never on a 4.0L. As well it's been posted here that gas mileage will suffer with it added.

Why do you need to add it? The electric one not working properly?

So last weekend I was doing a coolant flush and found a 1" crack in the radiator. Bought a Vista-pro from rockauto for $79+ shipping. I never knew just how much fun it is changing one on a V8 hydro cooling fan WJ :thumbs:

I just put a battery in mine a few days ago as well... I was shocked at how much the price of a battery had increased.

Well after a little over a year its starting to overheat. I just replaced fan relay and thermostat and it will still climb to 260 when idling and no tow package.

Started the bb install. Got the front on and realized I must have some serious sag going on. It's now level with 2" spacers on the front! I don't guess there's any problem leaving it like this is there?

Before and after:

Thanks to jpat30!
