Default Noob w/ fan problem:'92 4.0L auto

Hi All,

First post here! Looking for recommendations for our '92 4.0L auto RWD. The fan is cracked between each blade, some more severe than others. Now before it flies apart, is there an electric assembly from another Ford vehicle that might make a good substitute? Or, is a like replacement from a JY the preferred way to go?

The truck is solid so far and I do most of the routine maint. Currently run Castrol 5w-30 with Napa Gold OF. A few things could use attention: tailgate is stuck, AC (old R12 system) is inoperative, need to install headliner fabric, leaky windshield, pealing paint, the usual I guess, but running gear otherwise is serviceable!

Any suggestions would be appreciated,
thank you for your time.

Some factory fans use up a lot of amps to run. I would suggest a ZIrgo 16" fan. They have one that is 3000 cfm for around $100. I have a Spal 16" 2300 cfm with my set up and it runs pretty good. But I'll be upgrading because when I'm going uphill in 95+ degree temp with the supercharger, it starts to get about half way on the temp.
