[QUOTE=FastPlastic;145201]No big deal guys, It's all about learning what works best for what car. As long as it relates to the Cherokee's I don't mind. Now for my two cent's worth. Has anyone ever thought about several smaller electric fans? Place 4-6 smaller fans on the radiator and set them up to kick in at different temps. Just a crazy idea.

I know a few setups use (2) electric cooling fans. You could certainly control them seperately. The more fans you have the harder it is to make a fan shroud. Shrouds definatly increase the effectiveness of the fans.

If you're crafty you could make a multi-speed fan controller. As temps go up, speed goes up. The electric car guys may know how to do this on the cheap & easy.

Which setup uses less electricity would need to be figured out experimentally I believe.
