Converting to an electric fan is not an option for me and this truck at this time. If you have a 3.0L V6 Ranger and your fan is this noisy then the fan clutch is going bad or is just bad. Mine is so bad it is engaged all the time. Sounds like a giant vacuum cleaner rolling down the street. The truck has a hair over 90K miles on it at the time of this video recording.
How to Replace a Fan Clutch
Learn how to change the fan clutch on your Mazda B3000 and Ford Ranger
pickup trucks. This process will also work for almost any other car out
there that has a fan clutch. What the fan clutch does is regulate the speed
of the fan so that the engine can warm up fast, yet stay cool when its at
operating temps (like how a thermostat regulates temp). When the fan clutch
goes bad, it can lock up and spin at full speed depending on the engine
rpm. The problem is that at high rpms your belt can break, the fan can
break, and you engine makes a lot of noise.

New Fan Clutch Installed - 2003 Ford Ranger Edge 3.0L
At 91K my factory fan clutch was noisy. It cost me a lot of power and
fuel. Now that I've replaced it the engine is more responsive and runs
much quieter. The bad fan clutch also contributed to a lot of the belt
squeal I had going on no long ago, but all other parts that may contribute
to the squeal were also replaced. You can read and see pictures about this
issue at http://www.ranger-forums.com/forum2/showthread.php?t=76585

Engine Overheating? Have You Checked Your Fan Clutch?
I got a request to do this. If anybody out there has a vehicle that is
equipped with a clutch fan, and your engine coolant levels and thermostat
are fine be sure to check out the clutch. If your vehicle is equipped with
electric fans, check the fuse.
