Thread: electric fans

    Default electric fans

    Anyone have any experience installing electric cooling fans? How hard are they to install yourself? What brand should I get? Any tips and tricks would be of great help.

    I installed ls1 fans from a 99 t/a and did all the wiring myself. I have around $90 in them and they work great. several places sell complete kits like flexalite and such. it really depends on how much you want to spend.

    I've put an electric fan on a jeep before, but I take it you want to install one and get rid of the engine driven fan?

    If you have any questions or problems don't hesitate to send me or any other GMTC moderators a PM

    I decided to go with flexalite. it has step by step instructions pretty easy to follow. today I mounted the control module on the fan and did the wiring on the fan itself. tomorrow is the fun stuff. removing the old and in with the new. I think the toughest part is going to be routing all the wiring and securing it properly out of the way so it doesn't chaff and what not. I will let all know how it goes.
