Anyone make the conversion from the stock fan setup to electric fans? Curious what your results were and if anyone has recommendations on fan setups? Thanks.

I'm doing it to both of my trucks this spring. I already have the fans off. I just need to put electric fans back on. I'm going to try and steer away from the flex-a-lite and put something together at a parts store. The flexalite is a 800 bucks and I could probably do something at the parts store for under 200.

if I remember right summit had the flexalite fans just under 600 I think.. when you get yours done let me know how you did it I want to do this.. but my time will be very limited to figure it all out this year building a house and the cabinet business is going like crazy if all goes as planned we will be booked through summer and possibly through fall

Others argue that at higher RPM's electric fans won't flow as much as a stock one or the cooling capacity is slighty decreased or something of that nature. But I'm all for them.

I don't got any kind of fans on either of my trucks. My 2002 will be getting electric ones shortly. Hauling about 3 Tons on a cold day and I don't have any problem.
