There are plates you can buy to help strengthen the bumper. They mount right on each side of the frame rail, goes from the bottom of the bumper to the top on the inside of it. Maybe that's what they were talking about? LMC and Ford sell them. If you look on the inside of the bumper you will see the mounting holes for them, two on the bottom and two on top.

"Bumper Mod"

It's me.....I did this modification to my bumper to get more air to the lower portion of the radiator....look at your bumper, and then look at this picture of mine, and you'll see why...... :

I moved the license plate down, and after removing the plastic crap, drilled two holes in the bottom corners of where I wanted the opening to be, and then cut them out with a sawzall .....after I got it all cut out and smoothed up, I painted the openings with flat black spray paint.....the bottom of the radiator is where the cooled water flows back into the water pump......I decided a little better air flow there would help....have no way to tell how much it helps, but it cools well......

P.S. you will also note that my trans cooler (Tru-Cool Max # 47391) is mounted behind the Grille...had to grind off the back of the grille to put it there, but that's where I wanted it, as I did not want it in front of the lower portion of the radiator....
Different, yes, but it all works well.....

after I hopped it up, you betcha it heated more, and sooner....all I do with this rig is tow my 5er, so it's 20,000+ lbs gross weight if the wheels are turning....

when you add fuel, and add air, you build a bigger fire....
the stock cooling system was designed to cool a stock engine, not a hopped-up one....
anything I can do (cheap is better) to increase airflow thru the radiator is a good thing in my book.....
especially after I covered the whole thing with an aftercooler....especially the bottom of the radiator....
hot water out of the engine comes in the top radiator hose, travels down, cooling as it goes, and exits the bottom of the radiator into the suction on the waterpump.......

I wanted more airflow to the bottom....pretty simple....
