All i want to do is control the fan from a rocker switch inside the car. Is there really a need for a relay or can I just wire it without one? (provided i use large enough wire and so on) thanks

You'd need a 75+ amp rocker switch. That would cost WAY more than the $20 75 amp relay.

Yeah, the rocker switch would never be able to handle the load placed on it if you ran all that power through it. You NEED to use a relay to handle the main load and the rocker switch as the signal to turn the fan on or off.

I wired my fan with the 10gauge wire running off the solenoind into the relay and then into the fan. The i tapped into the power wire for the coolant level sensor and ran the ground wire into the pass compartment to a switch under the radio. Open the ground and fan shuts off...complete the ground and the fan goes on
