    what fan kit are you installing?
    i've installed the flex-a-lite 180 on my previous truck and you run the green wire from the fan controller to a t-tap on the a/c compressor signal wire.

    I got a bit creative on this item on mine. I looked into the wiring diagram and tapped into the AC clutch wire inside the fusebox (engine fuse box) in order to protect the connection some. Sorry, no pics, but the wiring diagram in the on-line manual was what I used to find the correct wire in the fusebox, then I soldered the controller wire onto this wire and heat tubed and liquid taped it. I believe that the green wire that Flex wants you to tap into is on the drivers side down low by the compressor. I did not want to use a wire tap out in the open and down low for this as I figured in a year or two or three the connection would get bad.

    Keep us informed on how well it performs, especially in the heat under heavy load. I am thinking about doing this myself. I would prefer a dual fan setup if I can find one.

    Yes I think it would great if someone did a write up with pics. (Hint Hint) I have never been a fan (pun intended) of having the fan driven off of the motor.

    Do some searching. I posted my own thread a while back (no pics) and have posted into several others on my opinions on the kit and whether it's worth it or not.

    I got installed it myself. I have been using it for almost 4 days, it performs very well even with the 120 Fahrenheit outside. The a/c works better with this fan, it comes out more air and very cold. It gives a little more power to the engine and better response.

    I've had this fan for a few months, it is conncected to just the battery with a temp guage to turn on when the engine is above 175, so it'll run even when the truck is off. It reduces the drag the clutch fan had on the crank, doesn't free up hp, but helps it get up to the rpm's quicker and smoother. Throttle response is improved also. I also have all the nst lite pulleys so i red line prettty quick in the auto when im gunning it. The nst pullies weigh usually less than half to your getting rid of a good 10lbs of extra weight your engine doesn't need to push around.
