Other than cutting the tow rings were any other mods needed and how did you attach the mod bumper?
you will need the modular bumper bash plate large one, that's it

@Drew5150 I'm about to make the same swap. Would the MOD bumper fit with the standard plastic plate while I'm waiting for the full bash plate set to come in? Or would it require trimming? (I know I need to cut the tow loops so there's be the holes in the plastic plate for them)

Can't remember. I sold that one. I think you can trim it back without a problem its only plastic. I will tell you I put 13,000. miles on the 2.3 manual and it was a great ride. I ended up picking up a 2 door wildtrack. Which I will need to change out the bumper.

Appreciate the response. I have the 2.3 4DR OBX and am loving it. I want to get the MOD bumper on without cutting up any of the factory plastic pieces so I can keep them all in my garage - already bought a backup set of the intercooler mounts/tow loops.

Might just pop off the plastic one tonight and see how it lines up. Did you come across a diagram for the MOD bumper? I purchased one from a member locally but everything is just in a single box without anything labeled.

You can use existing frame plate, and all 6 bolts from standard bumper. Once you pull standard bumper off you will see how it all works. If you have any questions when you get into it text me 4408649779. Happy to help, can walk you through it.

If you are going from standard to mod, could you use jack stands / jack to hold intercooler in place, remove brackets w/ D ring, and install brackets w/o D ring?

I cut my standard tow hooks off with a grinder. I would think you could use a jack stand to do one at a time.

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.
tow hooks bolt on modular bumper.
