I just havnt thought of a good way to get it down under the bumper and attach it to the frame and after adding my front hitch last weekend there not really enough room to run bolts through the frame from side to side it will probably have to be top to bottom. but then again i have to design something that works

Ok so I got a pick of how it mounts. I think if I just cut off the part that comes up off of it and drill new holes it will be fine because that part is 3 inches tall. Is that what you guys think too?

Me and my dad were thinking weld on a peice of 1/4 plate to square up the bottom of brush guard under where the bolt holes are. then measure 3 inches down from center and drill new holes and cut the top mounting holes off. and it should bolt up and be just about in the origonal spot before the body lift.
