Electric Fan (I Love My Hubby)

i was just informed that i am getting a procomp electric fan and thermostat . he just ordered them off of ebay and "won" the bid for $30 . he plans on hooking it up with a switch, so that i can turn off the fan before going into (and getting stuck in) water/mud. don't get me wrong, i love him for more reasons than just that, this kind of stuff is just the icing on the cake!

So next time you come to a dead stop in "mud pit"...you can turn on the fan to help propel you out!!

i think that defeats the purpose of having an on off switch.

mine is too, but it is not moving much air which is why i kept over heating at RC. this should remedy the problem (as long as i remember to turn the fan on & off at the right times)

Now this is just what I would do but... I'd wire a timer and buzzer into the switch. So that after say 5 minutes of having the fan off the timer would runout and then power the buzzer as a saftey reminder

Oh....I just figured you could turn it on in the water and use it like a boat propeller. You could glide right across lake christy. Which by the way has shrunk in size...by a good amount.

i'm not worried about "on," i am more worried about "off." i have to remember to turn it off before getting stuck in water holes.

you could wire up a sensor t your front bumper, that whne ver it hit water, it would turn the fan off. then you just turn it back on when you are done playing.

My buddy make it through lake christy just cause the people on the other side offered him a free hotdog if he made it He runs a 4" lift 2" body lift and 35's. he went on the right side if you're coming down the hill coming from the small lake before it (There were a few "holy crap he's gonna roll it into the lake" type moments )

I always wondered if you had some 35 inche super swammper boggers and attached a pontune to eash side of your jeep if the boggers would paddle the jeep to the otherside of the lake. Maybe have a roof rack to hold the pontunes while your not crossing the lake.

You'd need at least 2 2000 lb pontoons
