I saw three bolts each side.
Looks like that would require dropping the bash plate. I have a general curiosity about how easy it will be to get tools behind that front bumper.

Thanks for the input!!!

This provides the intercooler with a bit of left-right slack in case either recovery bracket flexes under torque. Hopefully it leaves enough play to keep it from being a problem!
I bet you a bronco it’s slotted for assembly purposes, not to allow the bracket to flex.

Good point...would be nice to hear from someone who designed this stuff. I have to believe that with all the effort building ridiculous capability into the Bronco they would’ve accounted for this too. The bracket has to flex at least a little if someone puts a ton of lateral load on the hook. Heat exchangers with a plastic header pressed onto an aluminum core aren’t known for their ability to take a beating.

It’s there for assembly tolerance but also for when the frame is flexing while driving hence why the radiator isn’t bolted at the bottom either but instead uses isolators like the intercooler to allow for movement of the frame.

Have you been able to order it? I've tried several times over the last week and it says it can't be delivered to my state.

Seems are circled - there are two bolts from the top (unseen), two bolts from the upper left side (unseen), and 3 on the bottom (2 unseen, 1 seen).


They were shown removed on the Rubicon.

EDIT: Saw now you were talking about the capable modular, not HD modular.
I see you realized we were discussing the capable bumper, not the modular bumper. Anyway, @FATHORSE here are some pics of the back side of the both bumpers.

Can any of you with access to the Service Manual get screen shots of these for us?

What will it take to DOWNGRADE the higher trim head and tail lights to the base head & tail lights?

I called helm inc about this. It has nothing to do with delivery location. Everyone is getting that error. It's not actually available to be shipped yet even though it's listed as in stock. Might be available soon.

Ah so here is the problem - the pictures you are showing are not the the capable bumper they are just the MIC bumper.

There are only two front bumpers per the order guide, the service manual and for once it's consistent on B&P.

- MIC bumper
- HD Modular Bumper

Now the MIC bumper can come w/ and w/o fogs, but it's the same bumper. So the ends are not removable.

The Capable bumper, from your previous infographic, is offered through Ford Performance, which probably comes with its own separate service manual.

But, let's be honest, that bumper probably doesn't exist yet. It did look good on that cactus gray with the white interior and a bunch of other stuff we won't get.

@Rednek or @flip, can either of you confirm the sizes of the Bronco bolts? From photos posted in another thread, I am guessing M8 x 30mm T40 Torx and M6 x 20mm T40 Torx, but it would be nice to confirm actual specs. Thanks.

Too lazy to read whole thing. Almost look like torx plus heads. Where do these go? I can have parts look them up Monday. Wonder if the service replacements will have bronco on them or just plain. Get me some locations and I’ll get you some part numbers. If they are in the depots already I’ll order some.
