Flex A Lite dual fan setup question

Hey everyone, I'm back with a fan question...

At the beginning of the year I trolled through this thread. There was so much information my brain began to hurt.
http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f8/co...ontrol-552543/

Maybe if I saw the Contour thread before I got the Flex A Lite setup, I would have gone that route. However, at a swap meet, I picked up what looks to be a Flex A Lite 583 dual fan setup. It was just the fans, with no brackets or wiring. From Summit I got a set of Flex A Lite brackets made for the 583 fan array.

However, I went the cheap route on the thermostat/relay. Picked up a piece of junk from Advance auto for $40.... JUNK. It failed me last night, and want it gone.

I know FAL makes a good kit for wiring it up, which runs about $160... Part number 31163

Does anyone have an opinion of a good way to go? Jeephammer has a fantastic diagram on the thread I mentioned above, but it might be a bit over my head. (unless someone wants to come to central Florida to lend a hand)

I really like the water sensor as opposed to the radiator probe. But its a bit pricey for the kit....

Any thoughts?

thanks in advance,
brian

Pm me. I think I still have the flex o lite thermostat and wiring that came with my dual fans. I was replacing a single fan and already had all wiring and thermostat and relays installed. You can have it. I have no use for it. I think I have directions for it also.

Jp..

for some reason I havent been receiving any email notifications about posts or subscribed threads... and had no idea you responded to my post...

Anyway, I tried to PM you but your message box was too full for you to receive it. If you still have the thermostat, etc... PM me, or respond here..

thanks again, and sorry for huge delay in seeing your post.

Brian

Another reason why I tossed my electric fans in the trash and went back to a stock, engine driven fan.
