I've wanted a front mount for a while now but i realllly don't want to have to cut my front bumper, i know the forge fmic fits behind the bumper with no or minor cutting involved but has anyone bought a universal one and managed to tuck that behind the bumper?

Steve did a good write up in the DIY section.

I fitted a front mount on mine that required no bumper mods. It just needed the towing eye bracket notched slightly.
The intercooler i used was the 140mm high one.. The 180mm high one needs the panel cut to fit it in.
Have a go at it!! You will get it sorted  :D

True.... To fit my 2wd cooler all I had to do was sand a few mm from the inside of the bumper for fitment  8)
