New to CJ's, so I'm a little clueless. Does the 1977 CJ 258 come with a radiator fan shroud ? mine does not have one and I am trying to get this thing dialed in, or are there aftermarket ones that work well ?
Thanks,
 
they need to have a shroud if you run a fan off your motor but for my 77cj5 with the amc 304 the only shrouds i can find are almost as expensive as upgrading to electric fans like this one that works with my radiator
 
I just went to the junk yard and found a shroud that was about the correct size, fabbed up a bracket and used that. Or if you want a factory replacement -->> Cooling System Parts Jeep CJ (use our coupon code and get 10% off).
 
My 77 never had one. It has never overheated unless I did something stupid like drive the blade into the radiator.:cool:
I do think the electric fan is the best way to go. there are several good sites and threads on using a Taurus or Concourse fan and shroud.
 
My '78 w/ a 258 didn't come with one either. I picked one up a fan shroud from a local guy on craigslist for $20. Craigslist can be your bestfriend looking for some of the oddball CJ parts.

Thanks for the replies. That gives me a sense of direction as far as the shroud goes, meaning it will be last on the list since the list grows long.

It was a long time ago and it involved a street sign that said "keep right". I did manage to hit it with the left side of the bumper. There are more details to the story but I prefer to keep them to myself. I would not want my 25 year old daughter to think her Dad was ever young and/or foolish.:cool:
 
IO, Maybe you could post a Thread in the Misc. I can see a good story here.
Back in the day, June 1970 we took out about 6 or 7 signs using a "Superbee," on our way to Garner State Park in Texas. lol H. S. Graduation Party. Well you get the picture.
