It sounds like normal operation to me. There is no air moving through the radiator when the car is idling. When the engine temperature reaches 205- 215*F, the fans come on to cool the engine.

Best Answer

Problem is it has never done this and it is spinning so hard and fast it is making the jeep vibrate.

The fan may have a damaged impeller. It could have thrown a balancing weight. --- Shut the engine off instead of idling. Turn up the cabin heat to cool the engine when it does idle.
