    I would like to eliminate the fan clutch on my 2016. Anyone know of a conversion kit?

    I would not do it. reason is the clutch fan does a better job and the electric fans use a huge amount of current so you will have to measure the current load now and then add the fans current you intend to buy .. then add that up and see what the alternator can handle.. typical fan will use about 300watts.. so that will be about 25amps ,, .. Then the fan shroud will have to match the electric fan blades...

    clutch fan keeps the engine constantly cool , electric no ..this is at idle stopped in traffic.. I have one with the clutch and one with the fans 2 fans .. well when the engine temp rises to 223 deg F then the fans come on , this occurs with the ac off and the engine idling when its like 75 deg F air temp .. if 90f then it shoots up faster.. clutch fan temps vary perhaps 5 deg F..
