I have a 78CJ7 with a AMC360, I am in the process of installing the Contour Dual fan set-up. My question is, I want to do this on the cheep side. I really just want to wire it to a toggle switch that I turn on/off everytime I use the jeep. Do I need relays/controller or can I just direct wire everything??
The temp switch controllers can't be that bad either. less chance of forgetting to turn it on. Or just wire it to an ign power source thru a relay, so when the key is in 'Run' the fan is on. Less hassle, fewer switches to clutter dash.

How many amps do the contour fans pull, together? I was looking at a fan control switch I found, its simple and easy and cheap. It has to be nothing fancy, the cj gets driven about once every 2 weeks, so this should do.
Only real questions I have is the setup has a AC override wire that goes to AC clutch. Any way I can wire this to a switch to force the fans to run? To ground or 12v?
2nd question, it also has an ignition cutoff switch, you wire it in so that it disables the system while cranking, what would I wire this to? The starter 12v?
