taurus electric fan?

I have been reading about useing a taurus fan on a wrangler. I have read about the 3 way rocker switch and the high low off deal. I only use my jeep as a daily driver and to get to tight spots to hunt. Dont do any (crazy) off roading, but do spend alot of time off of the pavment.
Question is do you have to have the bigger alternator if you just hook it up on low and is it enuff to keep it cool on low? Also what do I need to hook it up to and do you need all those relays and such to do it that way?
Thanks for any help. Almost for got my jeep is a 95 YJ.

Are you having cooling issues? If not, don't fix it. Sometimes it's better to get things that are made for the vehicle. I have a Flex-a-Lite 485 and it works great. Jeep/AMC Electric Fans . No special alternator required.

The taurus fans work great even on low, nice thing is they move the same amount of air sitting still as they do running down the road, and if your charging sys is in good shape it will support the fan on hi or low with no issues, If you are running the 2.5 look at a camero rs fan mid 80's and you can trim the shroud untill it is a exact fit and that way you dont have to modify the fan shroud mounts.

Really want to move some air look in to the mark 8 fan. It has the same motor as the taruns fan but is a little bigger. Moves about 42-4,500 cfm.


Remember though you want the fan to turn on on the highway (keep eye on temps when doing this as a experiment) because going 70mph the fan may actually restrict air flow.

Both fans need to have their only relay setup.. the mark 8 fan pulls 75 amps only for start up and settles at 40-50 ish running.

also get a controller and use the controller to trigger the relay... You could wire up a switch in the event you wanted to cool the motor down or coolant while it was off.
