Jeep junk.

RE: Jeep junk.
I used a '99 Altima dual fan with the Nissan radiator. I wonder if that would fit the Jeep. They are very economical, readily available, and effective. Lots of Nissan Hardbody guys followed me on that trick and continue to do well with them.
Such a setup would negate the need for that huge shroud. Free up lots of room in the engine bay.

I successfully brazed a manifold on my 440 motor home engine. Torch brazing may cure that one as well, but it will also need resurfacing.

RE: Jeep junk.
A little research shows the Altima radiator core to be 15" x 27"
It has a 2.4L engine

Stats: Fans have a high and low setting, Low 4.5 amp draw, high 7.5 amp draw +/- 10%. Low 974 cfm each, high is 1420 cfm each

If that doesn't fit, maybe just go back with a Taurus fan and use its shroud. Delete the Jeep shroud.

I have a stainless header to go on it.

The shroud also holds the coolant bottle and the power steering reservoir.

I may leave it out if I can figure out how to mount those.

RE: Jeep junk.
Knowing now what I didn't know then, I would delete the Jeep shroud. The trick is to have the fan blades half-in, half-out of the shroud. That is already accomplished by the electric fan setup.

I think it would be worth your while to make alternative mounts for the bottle and reservoir.

Old and busted.

New and shiny.

So I went with the mechanical fan.
It is rock solid reliable.

Reliable rules! Especially for us guys who've been around the block a few times.
Looks good.
Is that blue cord on the upper hose OEM? I would've figured they came stock with black cord. Wink

The upper radiator hose has gotten into the AC compressor pulley at some point. That was a “trail fix” to keep them apart.

So I was right. It is an aftermarket accessory. Smile
