THE CONTOUR DUAL FAN SWAP IS BY FAR THE EASIEST AND MOST EFFECTIVE COOLING UPGRADE I HAVE EVER DONE!!!!!!!!!
The install went as follows:
8 gauge power from Battery + terminal to a 6 circuit (each circuit rated at 30amps) panel on right side inner fender. I used two of the 6 circuits and ran 30amp fused power to two Bosch sealed relays (pulled with the bracket from a 97' caddy) each having their own 30 amp fused circuit. Then each fan was wired up with their own dedicated relay with 10 gauge power from their relay and 10 gauge grounds that run back to the Battery - terminal. I have an on/off switch mounted on my dash that provides power to my old school fan control switch (bulb mounted in radiator type) that controls the fan relays on/off. All connections were sealed with heat shrink tubing and covered in the plastic loom.
I am very impressed (that my jeep didn't burn to the ground
#1 - The fit - After cutting off the brackets the fan drops right into the radiator between the tanks and completely covers the entire cooling surface of the tubes/fins.
#2 - The flow - The amount of airflow that these fans pull feels like nearly double what the Flex a Lite unit was pulling.
#3 - The function - The entire system works very well and I don't even have a fancy controller.
#4 - The cost - $50 for the fan at the yard + $30 for miscellaneous electrical items and wire that I needed.
#5 - The ease of install - This was a VERY EASY install, thanks to all of those great write ups and threads on here.
I drove it all over today with no issues, both fans kick on 'high' at the same time and my alternator can keep up with them. And to top it off, my 401 passed smog on its own today
Here's some video, (The wiring for the fan is all neat but the rest under my hood needs to be cleaned up a bit, it's on the to do list):
Oh and here's another JEEP acronym for the wives:
