01 Grand Cherokee radiator fan

I would like to know if I can change an electric fan motor by a fan clutch.
My idea is take off the electric motor and reeplace it by a fan clutch. It is posible?

Generally when people do that swap it's the other way around. Right off the top of my head, I don't know if there's clearance for a clutch fan. You'll need the proper mounting pulley and a shroud. Any particular reason for wanting to do it?

Because is easier to me get a fun clutch and I think it is better than the electric motor.But I don't know what is the best option.

With a fan clutch even when 'DISENGAGED" there is some drag on the engine. With an electric fan when not needed there is no drag on the engine,thus resulting in better mileage. I think you are going to a lot of work to go backwards.
