Breakers reset, fuses don't. Spare fuses is good insurance. Once again, looks good.

Thanks for the kind words and clarification on that.

Did the same,but I used a Volvo fan.And mounted the sensor from a BMW on the thermostat housing (two speed).Low for regular cooling and high for AC,so both electric fans come on with the AC on or when the Temperature reaches 216

Volvo fan is 4" of depth I was told. I only had 3.25" due to my 3 row radiator I guess.

I would love to see the CFM on that fan and how it compares to the OEM.

Here is a pic, as you can see the tight fight during install.

No one has really tested it though. Or, I haven't seen it. If so, please post link. I'd be curious. Cause, this set up was tested and shows almost the same or more CFM with both on.

Great topic!

Different year Cherokee. Pulley is different. Looks good though.

When is your on/off temps at?

Pretty slick, man! I wanted a temp switch like that, but the ease of installation plus price made me go the route I did.
