My CJ has a Chevy 350 sb and I want to install an electric fan, but have no idea which setup to go with. I was looking at the dual procomps on ebay. I was also wondering if getting 2 fans 1 front and 1 back of radiator would be a good idea (like a wind tunnel?). any help in this would be very much appreciated.
Search Contour dual fan upgrade and read away. The dual fans off a V6 is a direct fit swap and move something close to 3200 CFM. Stacking fans, one in front pushing with another in rear pulling, is not a great idea.

For those contour fans, the controlled for them separate from the ECU? I'm going that route, and have one of those painless generic fan switches, but the dual controller would be better. I just don't want to pay $$$$ for a fancy one..

Taurus Sable Electric Cooling Fan This is a used and tested two speed electric cooling fan from a 91-95 Ford Taurus with the 3.8L engine. This is a popular conversion fan for Jeeps, Mustangs, Hot Rods, and many other vehicles. It moves approximately 4000 CFM of air on the high speed, though I have read claims of even higher output. I have this same style of fan in a 2001 Wrangler and it fits very well, and easily keeps things very cool. Both speeds of the fan have been tested. The dimensions, including mounting tabs, are 22 7/8" wide, 18 7/8" tall, and approximately 4 7/8" deep. It could easily be trimmed to 21"x 17 1/8" x 4 7/8" or maybe even less. The fan has 9 blades and is 16 1/2 inches in diameter. This fan is in good operational condition, and looks good as well. This fan comes with a short pigtail to splice into that plugs into the fan, and both of the clips that hold the plugs together are intact. When I found this fan, the plug connected to the motor had been cut off. I have installed a replacement plug by cutting the wires at staggered lengths, crimping and soldering the connections, and then using three layers of heat shrink tubing. The fan has been disassembled, hand brushed/washed, reassembled, and then tested. The wire loom tubing is new as well as the motor mounting bolts. There are some rub marks on the inside edges of the fan blades that can be seen in the photos. These spots, one on each blade, do not hurt the performance of the fan.
To date, I have sold over 250 Taurus fans on eBay! I have excellent feedback, and for good reason. Buy with confidence. My fans are accurately described, and if there are any cosmetic blemishes, they are fully disclosed. I NEVER use any products that make the motor or plastic look shinier than it's natural state, such as Armor All or even worse, gloss black spray paint. Unfortunately, not every seller can honestly say that.
Feel free to ask questions before bidding. Thanks.
thats a good looking set up fatman. im not bashing you but its not a dirrect fit it dosent cover the entire radiator fins like a stock fan shroud will but the contur fan will. here is a pic of mine as i was wiring it up but you can see it covers the entire radiator like a proper fan shroud should (im not trying to pick a fight or dog your set up so please dont take it that way i was just trying to point out the differance between the 2 setups)
