Me, I'm plannin' on used twin AC fans from the junkyard. They work, and don't get as much use as the radiator fan.

Lincoln Mark VIII fan, 3700 CFM, 18", skewed blades complete with trim-able shroud, $99 new at Houston Performance, http://www.houstonperformance.com 281-893-6080.
It'll suck the chrome off a trailer hitch. [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img] However, you'll need a high amp. alternator to run it. Here's an URL that gives the details on the fan and how to wire it and the best relays to use, etc.. The instructions are for fitting it in a 'Stang but most of them would apply to a Jeep as well: http://www.geocities.com/MotorCity/S.../MarkVIII.html
If space is a problem, a 16" skewed blade fan set-up from a 95 'Stang works well. It keeps my warmed up 5.0L cool in the TX heat.

Re: Whats everybody using for electric fans?

The lincoln and mustang styles, do they have the flat motors. I was at the local junkyard and seen some taurus ones I really liked, they don't take much space at all. The chrysler ones have the twin fans which I kinda like to too. I think by going to a fan that was in used a v-8 is the ticket. Bigger fan and more blades. If anybody has a picture of the lincoln fan I would like to see it. Kinda curious on width. I don't have much room. ken

Yes they have flat motors; they're both ~4.25 - 5" thick. There are pics of them and specs at the Geocities link I posted above. Either fan will work well in a Jeep, however an upgrade to a 130A alternator is required to run either fan and I doubt that the Mark VIII will work in a Jeep with a stock radiator because of the fan's overall size.

I don't know about a daily driver but , I run a lincoln fan with a 64a alternator, it runs constantly without any battery problems so far...130a may or may not be required
