It's confusing because on vehicles built without mod bumper, those hook brackets *are* the intercooler brackets and appear within the 'front tow equipment' section. Weird to see the split, but I've seen worse organization in automotive EPCs before, so 🤷‍♂️
Not sure what you mean.

And I guess I'm not sure what you mean, either?

Your latest PDF doesn't show any lower intercooler brackets that I can see, either for mod or non-mod bumpers.

The front tow section PDF you posted *does* show some lower brackets (green) - at least for non-mod bumpers - because of how the hooks are integrated.

In any case, gaining P/Ns for the hookless lower intercooler brackets needed for swapping from a standard to a mod bumper would be handy as more people wind up doing this sort of thing.

Oh yea, is there anything behind the plastic box in front of the intercooler if you don't have ACC?
The motor for the CAC shutters.

Idk why I thought this was easily interchangeable
Probably because that’s what a lot of us thought/assumed. That’s the selling point right? The Bronco is modular. Now that I’ve seen this I realize I should have noticed some of those differences, but I honestly thought the same as you.

OP ... I am so confused. Do you have any pics of the bracket before you cut the tow hooks?

I assume if I need to replace the Intercooler, I would unbolt that bracket that contains the tow hooks correct? If yes why did you just not unbolt the entire bracket?

Changed out standard for Ford Performance Heavy-Duty Modular. Had to modify a little to get it to fit. Cut off standard tow hooks to get steel plate to fit.

My unit is coming with Modular Bumper but I have a question, are the modular tow hooks welded on or bolted? I wanted to powder coat tow hooks to match body color.

welded if you dont want to cut them off you will have to order new bracket.

You offering or wanting me to find out for you? If it's the latter, I'm out. Way too many parts involved and no front MOD assembly offered right now.

Other than cutting the tow rings were any other mods needed and how did you attach the mod bumper?
