Soooo....... it's been a long couple of weeks huh? LOLI forgot to mention too,there's one thing I think this mod needs to be truly complete. It'll probably take me a couple of weeks to get to it but I'll be sure to post it up when I get it done.
You can't keep the stock e-fan and put this on top of it, this replaces the stock fan and plugs into the stock harness where the old fan was. If you use a tuner (SCT, Superchips, etc), you can reprogram the stock setpoints for the fan and not have to use an aftermarket fan controller."Plugged right in" - what plug? (someone mentioned a/c-pcm plug?) But since I plan on keeping the tiny a/c fan and replacing only the clutch fan (on water pump/pulley).. there is no free plug that I know of floating around in the engine bay to plug this e-fan in to.
I can't tell you much about the fan itself,I purchased it used from caulk04 here on this forum. Cost me $50 if I remember correctly. This fan will NOT fit with the original a/c fan. I pulled it and that is the plug I am using. Eventually,I will get some pics/specs posted on the mounts I made when I pull the engine apart for head gasket swaps. May even make/sell some if someone wants them.What year/submodel/engine size did the grand cherokee fan come from?
Just out of curiosity, was it new or junk yard? And what was the cost? (if you don't mind)

Not to mention I would probably use a fan controller for something below +210*.. since I plan on running the JET 180* thermostat. Unless someone knows the optimal temp to run the fan at? (maybe a 2 stage (diff temps IDK? maybe [email protected]* [email protected]/215*, off at 190*) That's a whole other page)
Anywhoot, let me know when you can.
I too want to do this and can't wait until your photos are back.
There were a few specifics I was curious about ^
Is there an "optimal run fan/on temp" for the primary fan in the OE/Stock setup?
The search results for your item number turned up zero on ebay. My luck. Haven't had time to see if any forum members have one for sale. Thanks for the extra clarification.First one is right, but it includes the shroud which you don't need so theres no sense paying for it.
Second one is no good - in fact it's illegal for him to be selling it because it has been recalled. You want the one with an AB or AC suffix (2nd or 3rd revision), or the number I posted above.
