probably it will and probably you are not paranoid this is a really good question. Most OEM ICs heat soak quick. One good hit and it heat soaks, the next hits power reduces considerably. So bigger IC will just make back-to-back hits more consistent. An aftermarket aluminum version would be helpful.
Some newer IC cores are sandwiched with the condenser and radiator. I wonder if the engine controller is smart enough to engage the electric fan if the charge temp is above threshold?

enough of the rant. The OE winch POSITION is junk IMHO I‘ll wait for a more stealth winch (or fab one up) and an aftermarket IC wouldn’t hurt anything.
Aftermarket Intercooler was always a must for me to do, while I'm definitely gonna do a stealth winch now

Thanks!

People google 1996 Ford 5.8L HP and Torque output. Questioning the 2.3L needs to STOP!!!
Lol, I have a 96 Bronco and know the HP sucks. It's funny that the 351 and 302 are pretty equal. That 2.3 should whip it.

Why does cyber orange which is actually yellow cost more than the other colors?
Because someone's stupid enough to pay for it

What do you do w/the doors when you remove them off the 2-Door
Since practical answers have already been provided, I suggest a creative solution. Get the rooftop bike carrier and strap the doors up top.

Edit: For clarification, I am being completely facetious. I hope no one actually thinks strapping their doors to the roof is a good idea.

What's the difference between the cheap (such as Barricade) steel bumpers and the more expensive ones? Don't just say strength or quality, quantify it or elaborate please because I'm at a loss why some are $450 and some are $1,600.
