Project is basically finished. Afton muffler did a good job for about 260. I installed a Ford Taurus Fan. I purchased a ford Taurus fan/shroud and a volvo fan with the relay pack. I swap the volvo fan into the ford fan shroud, added some brackets along the outside edge and it bolted right up. I went to the junkyard and pulled a jeep Cherokee fuse box, and pull a bunch of the wiring out of it. I opened up my fuse box and added the Cherokee wiring, fuses, and a relay to drive the fan. I purchased a 1.5 in diameter radiator hose adapter with a 3/8 npt nut welded to it of ebay for 22 shipped. I purchased an SW505 switch and the pigtail to go with it, and hooked everything up. The fan turns on at 220. That's a little higher than I would like, but it okay for now.

I had to make a custom shifter by cutting short pieces of round metal at different angles, and welding them together. It works well, but took forever.

I am very happy with the conversion! The jeep has plenty of power!

Baybsitter, maybe mom and grandma can steer the ship during your brief absence while you "troubleshoot" your creation. It l would be a shame to take the bride out wheelin on your rigs maiden voyage an break down. Then you'd have to call your friend with a truck and soon to be trailer to haul your back to the baby land.
