That said, yes, the OEM fan is no longer available but there's a thread where someone found another fan that is almost exactly the same and its bolt on.

 

Replacement fan are still in production...

Mopar has discontinued its offering of cooling fans for the 1989 to 2002 Turbo Diesel trucks. Those looking for a replacement end up paying a hefty sum for a used one from a junkyard. 

 

Not true... As Dorman now is producing the fans for fraction of that $300 price tag. 

 

In all the years of owning my truck I've NEVER overheated ONCE. Never had coolant temperature issues even towing heavy.

Good to know.....  This must have been fairly recent because for awhile finding these fans meant combing junkyards.  Good info. :thumb1:

I've got one blade on fan tiny bit out of wack.  No overheating problems even towing 9k.  No rivets loose that I can tell.  I would hate to have fan go and destroy other stuff.  

What is OK or when to replace?

 

(edit...found info on what is OK and what is not)

 


WARNING: DO NOT ATTEMPT TO BEND OR STRAIGHTEN FAN BLADES IF FAN IS NOT WITHIN SPECIFICATIONS.
CAUTION: If fan blade assembly is replaced because of mechanical damage, water pump and viscous fan drive should also be inspected. These components could have been damaged due to excessive vibration.


(1) Remove fan blade assembly from viscous fan drive unit (four bolts).

(2) Lay fan on a flat surface with leading edge facing down. With tip of blade touching flat surface, replace fan if clearance between opposite blade and surface is greater than 2.0 mm (.090 inch). Rocking motion of opposite blades should not exceed 2.0 mm (.090 inch). Test all blades in this manner.

(3) Inspect fan assembly for cracks, bends, loose rivets or broken welds. Replace fan if any damage is found
