Finally got the switch! Now just havent decided where I want to mount it so for now the wiring is wrapped around my parking brake. Here is a pic of the components under the hood. Just a relay and a flasher button. I didnt like the speed of the 3$ thermal flasher button I tried first so I bought an electronic one 8$. Crimped all the fittings on then put shrink wrap over all of them. Plugged it all up here it is.

Thanks, the reason I haven't mounted the switch yet is because I want to have all my future switches (air horn, misc lights, etc.) all in the same location so it will somewhat look like an organized switch panel. I was thinking on the side of the plastic housing for the 4x4 shifter. But then I rememberd I used to have my LED underglow switches there as I would always bump them and turn them on. So now I'm thinking the plastic panel under the steering wheel that you can remove to access steering column and misc wiring. Only problem is that I'll have to unplug the wiring going to the switches whenever I need to remove the panel. Still undecided.

So I am about to add a body lift and didn't want to cut and modify the fan shroud. Off to the wrecking yard to find an electric cooling fan. And here is what I came up with, pulled the it out of a 1994 Ford Tarus, $13.



Got home and removed my fan clutch and fan shroud.




I found some scrap metal laying around the house and fabbed up some brackets to hold the e-fan inside of the original fan shroud.



Threw on a little black paint


I used pop rivets to secure the brackets to the fans.


Threw it all back into the truck and wired it up.


I havent decided what controller I'm going to use to for now I just wired it up to a relay and tapped into the fuse box and found a spare fuse slot that only recieves power when the ignition is on, so that is the remote wire on the relay. Just temporary.


Pretty happy with it, we will see how it acts next time stopped in traffic or putting around in town.
