Something that would communicate with the truck canbus or full standalone? Full standalone would be awesome as long as temp settings are adjustable. I have a 2014 model v6 pwm brushless fan in my storage I would love to use. If your controller would work like my current setup would be awesome.

This would communicate with truck’s canbus and then be able to adjust temps as well with software. I would be able to offer a stand alone sensor that has a fixed temperature sensor as well.

Are you on Facebook? If so you should look up “high performance rams” and post there. That’s where you will find a more people that may be interested. If you can get one together and working I would be interested as well. The one I was trying for used the truck canbus to cycle on and off for ac on as well as speed adjustment based on engine demand

I’m not on Facebook, but if this goes somewhere, I guess I’ll have to.

New location coming soon for my fan controller. Not necessarily the best at ease of access but definitely the driest location I can find that this fits. Been running on the stock computer to run the fan recently due to floridas wet weather and the addition of my snorkel has pushed me to remove the controller until I found a better spot. This is the best I could come up with. Now to order automotive wire to rerun all my controls and the feed for the fan. I need to find a wrecked truck and get the truck side fan wiring harness to wire into my truck for a super easy install

What about mounting it under the pass seat Khris,looks like it should fit,and it'd be a little more accessable.

Thought about under the driver seat even but figured if I’m off-roading and get water in the cab that’s the first place to get wet so higher is better.

Yes if you plan on sinking it that deep,under the seat wouldn't be a good place. Some days i worry about you Khris,lol:Big Laugh:
Another thing I’m contemplating is how I’m going to tap for the ac to turn the fan on. The old way I had it anytime the compressor ran the fan would kick to full speed. If the ac is on max it would run the entire time the truck is on especially now in the heat of summer. I’ve noticed since I’m back running on the stock computer that the fan hardly runs unless I’m stopped. May tap the feed from the tipm that feeds the fan to tell my controller the ac is running instead. All speculation. I’ll check to see if there’s a fuse I can use a fuse tap for the ac

Done. Plug and play. I can switch back to the stock harness now without modifying anything. Can also swap fans and it’s a direct swap. Used the factory fan relay as a failsafe feed to my controller to bypass the controller if the coolant temp goes above my programmed temp. It sets the controller into full speed and also kicks on for the ac.
