    Don't know about warranty?? Ive done so much to my truck.....I would imagine that mine is gone. I would call Toyota. I'm sure someone will chime in on this one.

    You can select almost any dual fan. Mine was off a Nissan Sentra I believe. It really wasn't hard to do. The small advantage that you will see is less lag on the engine during a RPM cycle. It revs faster.

    The only thing I have done since the write up is install a kill switch (interrupter) so that I can shut the fan off when Im just sitting with the engine off. If you have any other questions, let me know.

    I bought that kit you see in the write up, but the thermostat was bad. Never took it back. Just ended up wiring it on a accessory wire, so it comes on when the key is over. I need to just buy a kit, take the thermostat out and send the messed up on back....just haven't.

    I would get them for you, but my truck is still in the paint shop.....:motz:

    Before I bought it, I just measured the radiator with the fan scroud off. Then used that measurement as a guide. I really think that an dual fan will work though, when you consider that our stock fan is single and still manages to keep the engine cool. I haven't had any cooling problems.

    One thing to keep in mind when doing this mod is the overflow reservoir for the radiator. The stock one is attached to the fan shroud. I couldn't get it to come out. I just bought a universal one and attached it on the left side of the engine compartment near the air box. Just FYI.

    Also, if you use a fan from a junk yard, you will likely have to make your own fan mounts....as I did. I used some sheet metal brackets that I purchased from Home Depot (in the lumber section).​
