Uhh more and more problems with this dam body lift...

STL i'm either going to get the Westin brush guard or the Aries brush guard which is pretty much identical... here is a picture of a truck with the westin one (i think) that has a 3" body lift and it worked so i think it might work without modification...

here are the instructions for mounting the Aries brush guard and it sounds like it mounts to the frame meaning it would not go up with the body lift right?

http://ariesautomotive.com/applicati...brush/3053.pdf

EDIT: Just talked to the guy who owns that yellow ranger up there and he did modify that brush guard. 3.5" bracket that not only made the brush guard go up with the body lift but also made the brush guard tighter to the truck which is why i like it so much more than any other truck i've seen with a brush guard...
all this custom fab stuff is startin to make me mad... i just want to bolt it on and call it a day...

I did it by myself with hand tools in the parking lot of my apartment with no experience, just go for it. The directions are pretty simple and they have pics

^^ I think most tire shops would do it. You could check a frame shop and check a custom shop as well as off-road shops.
