just remember Griggs formula. If you go plastic, you want an even number of blades. When one breaks you can break the opposite one to maintain balance to get home.

I had one like hucksters but with a BU** ugly bracket. his looks pretty decent. I'm still of the opinion the best looking is the stock shroud. it doesn't quite look right without the shroud. Taurus fan bolted to the shroud is what I'm gonna do. I have the fan and should have Griggs controller soon. Total cost - $65

Let me know how that works out. I seriously want to put an efan back on my truck, but need to overcome the tranny cooling problems with it.

This isn't that exciting, and I may very well mount mine back into the original shroud, but three simple wires have solved any problems with my efan.

will do. Right now I have the shroud off the truck so I can mount the e-fan to it. My week got pretty crazy. I'll hopefully have pics this weekend- at least of the two bolted together but not in the truck. I've physically seen installs of this at a meet in Houston. It was impressive.

This method solves a lot of concerns from function to appearance to ease of installation. It looks good because the radiator is still covered by the shroud. It installs easy because you don't have to remove or slide around the radiator to put plastic tabs through it. You don't have to worry about the tabs getting cut in the radiator because there are none. The total cost would be $65- $70 and it is oem quality.

Like I said, I originally had the style shown on huckster. I was naive and thought the shroud it had would cover the radiator. I paid premuim dollars for it ($250) to get the only one that came with a blue shroud. It still didn't look right imo.

maurice, in my case one fan blade broke. It shook the WHOLE truck. I'm not sure about zachs. There again, get a fan with even number of blades, get a metal perma cool, or get one that has all the plastic blades connected by an outer ring for extra strength ( I think Jusnes has this).

I've used the permacool. Its about $120 less controller, pushes close to 3000 rpm, and is a work horse.

I think it has the support ring, but has an odd number of blades. I would say less chance of a blade breaking but a bad shake if it does. An on-off switch when offroading through mud/water would be good, but I don't think it's been a problem with his.
