Default DODGE RAM 1500 2500 COOLING FANS engine radiator fan

I purchased these fans and I am wondering what would be the best way to install the fans..

I'm also wondering if I should use both bands..

I paid 56.11, is this a good deal for the fans?
If anybody can take pictures of your installed fan and post them up, that would be nice.

Link to the auctions.

I hate to say it but the seller on ebay got you. There is not a DR that ever came with electric fans stock unless the newer 4th Gens come with them now. Thats why we buy OEM fans from other cars and retrofit them

A 10" fan rated at 1000 cfm isnt going to get it anyway but two might work if they are running at the same time. Plus you need a fan controller but thats easy.

Read this thread

And buy this fan controller

Looks like they don't move enough air, either. You'll still need a controller, too.

4th Gens are clutch fan too. Ain't no way they were made for a Ram.

You'll need 2400 cfm MINIMUM to keep the truck cool and I personally wouldn't feel comfortable with less than 2800 cfm. I paid a wee bit more than you at $260, but I can't complain, my Flex-A-Light came with everything needed, good instructions and moves 3300 cfm...

Think, I can use it as a pusher by reversing blades?
Would that help?

Well, you won't "reverse" the blades, you'll reverse the polarity on the motor. No, that won't help the sub-standard flow.

Like i said, using both at the same time MIGHT work. But the bad thing is no one uses anything like that because no one wants to be the guinea pig. Thats why we all use something that has been tested and proven to work.

I've heard of people using a 'push pull' dual fan system where one is on the front and one on the back of the radiator. Might work well enough to make the fans usable?

CFM is CFM. The two fans together apparently move about 2,000 CFM whether they're pushin' or pullin'. That's about 50% short.
