Need some info on brush guard install please

I have searched the topic but cannot get the answers I need. I have an 05 level ll. Will I have to take off my skidplate to mount this and also, is it fairly simple to fab up or adjust the brackets to compensate for the body lift? i am looking at the Hunter brush guard, which is very similiar to the Westin. How many points of attachment are there? Also, I am not sure if it matters but my bumper is re-located up so it looks stock. thanks in advance. Any info is greatly appreciated.

I have a Westin Sportsman on my '08 sport. I had to drop the skid plate to get the lower mounts on but I was able to put the skid back on after the install. As for attachment points, if memory serves the one I have mounts to the frame and there should be some brackets that mount to the back side of the tow hook brackets so I wanna say 4 total mount points

Yeah you keep the tow hooks. The mounts hook onto the back side of the bolts and snake through between the top of the bumper and the grille surround.
