I think I have a problem with the electric fan install, it won't fit!
I have slightly more than 3" on the back side of the radiator and slightly less than 4" on the front side . The fan will require at least 4.25 inches.
Has anyone done this with a CJ5 and/or a l6?

Most of the write-ups I've seen were with V8's.
This is such a common swap google should come up with a million hits.

I am going to find a twin fan out of a ford next weekend and see if I can make that work.

Brock, do you use the contour fan?? if so do you run both at once or cycle them independently?

did you have to offset it to one side of the water pump pulley? or was there room between the pulley and the radiator?

If i remember correctly there was enough room for it to be safe enough for offroading but not much more. A ford contour will be a better fit most likely not to mention a better over all fan. Plus it doesn't have the amp draw issues the taurus has.
Also it fits the radiator better as far as coverage.
