dual 12" cooling fans instead of the stock cooling fan

my fan is out...definitely the fan I've ran power directly to it. it's dead. I'm contemplating on replacing it with a pair of 12 inch fans. mainly because I have a brand new set somewhere in my shop. the question I have is has anyone done this? and secondly when I wire them back to the relay do they kick off and on as needed like the factory does...or did?

Have not done it but I'd imagine if the new fan pulls the same amps etc I don't see why it wouldn't work. Not sure which engine you have assuming the 4.0 most people just go the mechanical fan and clutch route. There are write ups on here about it.

Cant tell which engine you have but I replaced the E Fan in my 4.7 for about 100 bucks. Not a lot of money to be saved by using a fan thats "somewhere around my shop". Do you want to mess around reinventing the wheel or do you want to change out the Efan quickly and get back on the road?

it's a 4.0l , it's not a daily driver. it started life as a 2wd we pulled out of a scrapyard to use as the shop parts truck....but 2 years later the build has gone much further than originally intended.

lol i own a engine shop, it may sound foreign "laying around my shop" but you might be surprised what all you end up with when you've been doing it as long as I have 👍
