I would like some information on doing this as I am looking at a 180 stat install and this seems like the next logical step.

I went to my local auto parts store and bought a electric fan wiring harness. It has a relay with an adjustable thermostat. Very simple to install, the wires are; battery +, ignition (switched +), ground , 2 fan + leads (for two fans, I only used one), and a wire to the + of the AC clutch, I ran the - wire from the fan to the - battery terminal.
There is a you tube video of a guy installing an electric fan in a ram. Just google it. If you have any problems pm me and I will help.

Yes the wiring kit I bought has fuses. Instead of running it two speeds, just hook up the fast speed wire. The idea is to cool the radiator, not kinda cool the radiator! Ok, so Im a smart azz, but you know what I mean. My wiring kit only did up to two fans, not two speeds. Its either on or off.
