they don't make really that many brushguards for our truck that have winch capabilites.....but in any case special fabrication can be done to allow the brushgaurd to fit..

im pretty sure most brush guards bolt on below the bumper so raising the body wont do anything and you should even do fine if you decide to put the bumper brackets on.

if you move up the bumpers there will be a space of three inches between the bumper and the brushguard....if you have a brushguard that has bolts for the bumper along with the frame then it will not work right.....special brackets can be made to move the brushguard back to the current location

the bumper you want will bolt to the frame. to make it strong enough to winch with, you will have to fab one to work with the body lift

Yeah, to my knowledge, no one makes a brushguard for our trucks that has winch capabilities. You can run a front reciever which mounts to the frame and put a winch on that, but if you body lift, you will have to cut a hole in the valance.
