Looking for a fan!


Flex-a-lite - JEGS High Performance

Anyone know anything about these fan blades? I want something that will draw more air through my radiator so my engine runs just a bit cooler. I installed a CSF 100% brass radiator in it already, I just want something to take it a step further. Planning on flushing with Engine Ice at some point, too.

Ideas would be helpful!

You'll be money ahead if you skip the aftermarket fans........the factory clutch fan will move way more air than any of the aftermarket stuff. Just make sure the fan clutch is working, if not, replace it.

My factory clutch fan never sucked air the way my new flex-a-lite 475 does. I can stand in front of it and feel air moving eight inches or so away. Plus, more power and better fuel economy with the electric fan. Try to find a site to compare the actual numbers...

lambdatoys-So the 2050 CFM fan keeps the Jeep cool even when wheeling. What about in traffic in the summer there? I have been debating on how large a fan I need. I can not find the CFM numbers on the stock setup.
2000 Sahara, 3.5" Rubicon Express Lift, 1" spring spacer & 1" Body Lift, 33" or 35" BFG Mud tires, Front & Rear ARB, Rancho 9000 shocks, UCF Ultra High Belly Up, Savvy gas tank skid.
