what the Best electric fan for wrangler tj 2006

hi there ..
I am a new member here . i'm from saudi arabia i have Jeep wrangler 2006

so . i need electric fan for my jeep Because As you know, air temperature in Saudi Arabia is very high in summer

My question is if i add electric fan in my jeep Would the cooling system well be better ?


i Found this Flex-a-lite Electric Fan 485 . is that good ??
Flex-a-lite 485 - Flex-a-lite Electric Cooling Fan for 87-06 Jeep® Wrangler YJ, TJ & Unlimited - Quadratec
if i buy that

Fan with Brackets
Thermostat Box with Probe
Wiring and Fuse

Do I need other Parts to installed in my jeep ? "i have StockRadiator "

Most of the people in my country adds For their Jeeps Subaru electric
fan and Thermostat 160 for Caprice car .. And become like this pic



And sorry for my bad English

You will want your engine to run around 200 just because thats how it should run. You wont risk cracks in any of the parts on the engine.

You can get ford Taurus fans that work just as well and are pretty cheap. But then again I don't know the availability in Saudi, but here in the states they are a dime a dozen.

Electric Fan

This Derale fan works for me here in SE Texas with our hot humid summers and it is a direct bolt in.

You might have to upgrade the alternator but you can try it first. I would say that 90 percent of the time you can run it on low speed

That might work, I haven't used one personally. As long as its over 100A you will be fine.
