Default Body lift + Brush Guard ?

I was just wondering if I was to get a brush guard then later put a body lift on. would the brush guard sit lower then it did before, Causing it to look uneven?

no? If your gaurd is bolted or welded to your frame then it wont watter how your lift is.

On my brush guard i had the brackets cut between the frame and the bottom of the bracket. Here is a picture showing where


The braket is kinda shaped like an L hanging from the lower bolt on the bumper mount on the frame. So if you make it smaller it will raise the brush guard

if it is a BL it will make a difference as the frame is not going up with the body

Ok ,but like azgilamonster said if its connected to the frame and the body is raised, how would it not end up looking lower, because the frame isnt being raised.. Sorry if that was confusing

...same answer as Ty. Alter the brackets, bolt it on.
