    Well then. That settles that. Thanks for the info buddy. I was thinking with some free to me batteries and cable then why not. Single up front will be easier and leave me more room for shit in the back.

    So that's question 2 answered. lol

    Well Pippy answered question #2 for me lol.

    To answer (or should I say give input on) question #1. I run the 2 speed Volvo fan on my YJ. It moves a shit ton of air! They seem to be much easier to find in a junkyard because everyone and their brother know about the torus fan so they are all picked.

    As for wiring up the 2 speed... I just hooked the high speed side to ignition power so I'm afraid I'm no help to you there.

    Just to play devil's advocate on the battery thing. I run a dual battery set up in the front of my Jeep and use the 100% duty cycle contactor like pip was talking about. Mine came off of a big rig. I love having the piece of mind that I can run my stereo/lights/power inverter all I want and still have a full battery to start my Jeep with. My winch also loves having all that hydro on tap up front. With you running the 6.0L I doubt you will be able to find room up front for 2 batteries though.

    An LS engine is packaged fairly small. They don't take up a lot of space and there a plenty of V8 CJ/YJ/TJ's running around with dual battery trays in the OEM location.

    As for fans, I would pick the set up that fits your rad core area best. The core size on my rad is pretty much the same as yours. I run a Lincoln Mark 8 fan. It is one of the highest flowing OEM fans out there but controlling it can be a bit of an issue because of the start up amperage if not using a variable speed controller. It pulls too many amps at full power to start up at 100% without eventually frying relaying contacts. A good variable speed controller solves all of that by starting the fans slowly and ramping up the power based on coolant temps.

    Thanks for the info Cheyne. I'll likely be back to pick your brain once I round up some fans. Lol

    My two piece clamp together rubber isolated gangster lean rad mount. Tight but I think she'll work

    LS accessory relocation brackets dropped off from my buddy with the laser cutter. Fawkin guy! But the mirror finish cock bracket should add at least 50hp. Lol

    The mystique fan assembly is an excellent fit. Nice score.

    Yup, pretty happy. Been hunting and i've seen them in worse shape for $500-750. This one is 23 1/2 foot, 3,500# axles, electric brakes. Tires are a bit weather cracked but the neighbour has a bunch laying around so i'll likely pick the best 4 and pack a spare or two. Likely leave it the length it is. Also have a bunch of freebies to go into it.....A couple lengths of 2" x 3" square tube, lights, swivel jacket, winch, a pile of big @ss 6V deep cycle batteries and a bunch of left over olive drab paint.

    Curious about registering it. Necessary? No ownership, there's a plate on the frame and it came with a trailer plate. Also, do they need fenders?

    Do it as home built and you will need to get it weighed and you will need the scale ticket for the mto

    When you do scale it just put it on with it not hookup to your truck

    Not true. Just registered mine with the MTO last week. All they want to know for home built is how many axles, colour and weight. has to be under 900kg, if over it has to have a safety. cost me 59.00 to get registration and a plate for mine.

    I just had to tell them the weight (went right to the max of 900kg, just under 2000lbs) and mine is a 18' steel deck .

    Awesome. Thanks buddy. Someone else just called and said the same, fill out a piece of paper, pay them and off you go with a plate and vin tag. What's the guess on weight of mine after a couple lengths of 2 x3 1/4 wall. Or what should i tell them? And $60 bucks, jeez, there goes my $200 trailer budget. lol
