Does it use those VERY unsightly brackets or does it mount through the fins?

the fan has a temp sensor that will control everything, you can set it and never think about it again. jared wanted a little more control and added a manual override. the kit does not include a swtich for it, but it will work with the controller.

it comes with a fully adjustable controller, so you can have all the say in when it comes on. There are some wires to work with, but my kit includes wire loom, so you can make it pretty if you want

hopefully we can get some intall pics soon, im sure jared has some.

there are about 5 people on here now running my fan kit, so far so good!!
I'll be investing in one from you in the new year or as soon as I get some money.

on the ranger, you can do either, the factory fan shroud would really only offer looks, since the fan taht comes with the kit is self shrouded

i know jared kept his shroud, on my F150 i didnt, because i used dual fans.

The shrouds main function is to keep the fan from drawing air from in the engine bay, around the side of the fan. it will pull air from the source of least resistance, so it wont want to come through the radiator. the shrould makes it so ALL of the air moved by the fan goes through the radiator. since the fans that come in our kit are selfshrouded, you dont NEED the stock shroud, but it does make for a cleaner installation. personally, i enjoy the extra 10 inces of room under my hood

its plenty sturday, but if used off road, i reccommend using some thin utility wire, drill a small hole in the shroud and the top of radiator flange, and use the wire to hold the fan up, to take the weignt off the core. it will be fine without this, but its just one more step to make them even more sturdy.

One thing I don't like about my truck-when I start it up in the moring it sounds like a jet airplane getting spooled up for takeoff. Turns out it's the cooling fan spinning way fast. This stops after alittle ways down the road. I don't like it.

I drive .5 miles to work. With an E-fan my engine would not warm up enough to even kick on. My engine should warm up faster and use less fuel. Should I get one?

definately, my fans rarely come on, only if i sit at a light for a while, then they will come on. our fans are VERY quiet for their CFM rating, much quieter than the ProForm/Flex-a-lite competition. My wifes does the same thing with the fan, at startup, its so annoying! when we end our sale on the 16 inch kits she is getting one in her ranger!

i love mine as well. yesterday i wired it to be manualy controlled and it still has the temp control as well. mine doesnt turn on unless its been completly warmed up(couple miles), then sits for atleast 10-15 min at idle.

rangers seem to cool at around 205 degrees consistantly if at idle(when it is about 60 degrees out). i have the controller set to turn on at 210 degrees or close to it. works great!

it also idles perfectly smooth now! love it

btw i have the jusnes modified one as well

Thanks Bob and zabeard. I figured my truck would benefit from an E-fan.

All my high-performance ATV engines have cooling fans, they only turn on when needed as well. Though I used to remove them (as well as alot of other parts) to reduce weight for drag racing.

I think I'll get one soon. (Bob)
