I am looking into a electric fan and I was wandering what is the minimum CFM I should look for? I want to make sure that whatever I get is big enough. ALso I want to try to mount it and then put my stock fan shroud back on so that way the botttles will still have somewhere to mount to. I am looking at the flex a lite fans. I want something that is a kit and come with a thermostat and everything and I also want to be able to shut it up whenver I need to.

Robo, just remember that some fan blade's will break off when going through water.

not if you turn it off (which is the point for most electric fans on a wheeling rig anyway)

5200 is good, 5500 CFM more than enough.
As for the coolant bottle and washer fluid jug, its very easy to fab up the brackets to elimnate the shroud. I've got pics at home of the brackets you need

The fan blades will be about 4 feet off of the ground. If I am in water that deep then I dont need to be there. I hate going through deep water so I shouldnt have a problem with that.

If you can email me the pics of post them up that would be great. I already have a solution for the windshield washer fluid. I have seen a bottle at advance that is just a universal thing that will work for this. I need to do some measureing still but right now I am looking at flex-a-lite 290 fan.
