Transformer w/Body Lift

Hey guys. I was wondering what I would have to do to use the trans4mer with the 3" body lift and still be able to use a winch. I dont have the trans4mer or a winch yet but I had a friend at an accessory supply house tell me he could get me the trans4mer and the winch at a good price. I really dont have a NEED for it yet but maybe soon in the future I will. I figured if I could make it work and still have the winch functional I could save a bit of money and it may look pretty good. Any thoughts or suggestions. I also thought about putting a hitch reciever to use a winch that way but I dont want one that hangs down below the bumper. Thanks for the help,

Shane

You guys can ignore this. I just found what Im gonna do. I went to the e-trailer store and they have a reciever that mounts behind the license plate and I am going to get that one I guess. Sorry for the wasted thread, you can delete this if you want.

You found one that goes behind the license plate? I've been trying to find one like that, but I know that Warn doesn't make one for our trucks. Could you post the link?

Yea. When you lift the body, that hitch is gonna be right behind the bumper and unusable. So you are gonna have to cut the hitch and shorten it to fit behind the plate again after you bodylift the truck.

Also, I will probably just cut a small hole in the valance just big enough for this.
