    No cutting
    It's mounted behind the crash bar, behind the flimsy metal piece that the bumper connects to

    For us with winches and aftermarket front bumpers, could we mount the IC higher behind the grille? Or does that have negative impacts on the rad or something? :confused:

    Intercooler has to be in front of the radiator otherwise it will soak up all the radiator temp and be permanently heat soaked.

    That low intercooler location is going to cut a huge piece of your market out. I would bet a large number of those who want this are also the people who already use that space for bumper and/or winch.

    Me included.

    Jesus fuck I see why the man never posts pictures/updates here, you all jump down his throat. If you think Mat is unaware of IC placement with other possible mods, you're actually an idiot. Let him figure it out and we'll go from there.

    If this intercooler is in the way then there must be quite a few other things in the way on these trucks from factory, like the big transmission cooler, the bracing for the hood latch, etc.

    Regardless, the intercooler can be moved pretty easily.

    The only thing is the hood latch support. You can't close the hood without it, as the metal is flimsy and bends. But I have a billet piece made for that.

    I’m less concerned about collisions from aftermarket things. I’m more concerned about airflow restrictions caused by aftermarket things

    Yeah a lot of us moved the steering cooler back to fit a winch in there as deep as we can, and run a larger trans cooler and fan to keep up with trans temps. Your market obviously isnt the heavy modded guys (we make up a smaller percent than those with mild mods) and im not worried about having to change things on this end. Why i played my little whiny violin :rofl::rofl: because I was being a baby. But I am interested in seeing where things go/fit.
    Any feedback on two smaller intercoolers offset to each side, using the spot under headlights to pull air? We did a few setups like that back in the EVO days but curious if youd crossed that off your list for any particular reason? (battery and air box are moved due to tubbing front end ann have some space to play with or move other items. ) :thumbsup:
