Curious why?
Lots of folks with overheating issues after swapping in electric fans and aftermarket rads...

Agree with Shark. An OE radiator with a working fan clutch should work fine. If you're looking to free up some horsepower the engine isn't where you start. For better cooling just maintain your cooling system the way it is.

As far as an electric fan in the past I've had good luck with flex a lite (other vehicles, not a Jeep).

Edit: if you reeeeeeeeeeeeealy want to spend some money on your Jeep you really can't go wrong with armor. Just don't get chrome...

Poor fan choices are the reason. Electric fans keep engines far bigger and multiple times more HP cool. I have a Lincoln Mark 7 (very similar to the Taurus) fan in my Mustang

Newbie2015, you going back to your old ways, starting multiple threads on every subject under the sun. Wheel color, hood vents, throttle body spacer, 8.8 axle upgrades, now electric fans.

You had stated many times before you loved your TJ just the way it is and really wanted to keep it as original as possible.

There is no issue with the stock setup keeping the engine at proper operating temp.... The OP said nothing about larger or more HP or mustang's

I did not say that the stock was not sufficient


You made generic comment

The Taurus fan has a long history of being used in many applications that run a lot hotter than a TJ 4.0 (or in this case a 4 cyl). Case in point my other vehicle.

That would be a downgrade.

Go argue with someone else. Your comment was just as generic. I asked the OP why.

Ask anything you want to. This is a tech forum for everyone. I learned 10 years ago to ignore negative comments here.AKA=Thick skin.

Given your experience and behavior on other forums I would have expected a much thicker skin. This is nothing.
