Special Thanks to TCOTTON and TKOB SPAL Fan Install

Hey, guys I just wanted to say thanks to TKOB for the write up and thanks to TCOTTON for the phone support. I got my fan in tonight (Still gotta wire my kill switch) but it is in and working great. I actually think my AC is blowing colder more easily also. Maybe in my head, but before I kinda had to get on the road and drive a little to cool the Jeep down. Cools down really fast just sitting there now (Again, could just be in my head, but seems that way).

First time I have ever worked on my vehicle besides oil changes. What a great feeling to take it out, fix it and put it back in.

Way past my bed time. Gotta hit the hay!

I just installed my Spal last week and it's great! Very easy swap to do.

I didn't do the foam around the fan though. It is having no problem cooling my rig without the foam in there.

Per your request, it's been added.

I also stated how I noticed it is in fact running two speeds.

Yeah, I didn't do the foam here either and I think TCOTTON didn't do the foam either. No problem whatsoever at all cooling the jeep without the foam.
