I would imagine that’s because he’s incorporating a winch which needs to be tied into your frame rails for any decent size winch. But the brush guard itself looks pretty substantial also so I wouldn’t be surprised if that is tied into the frame horns as well or ties into the tow hook location.

Well, this think has kicked my butt today! Apparently the passenger frame rail is a bit different then the drivers, needed to grind a few flanges on the winch mount arms.

Winch tray and guard frame are in place. Darn winch battery cables are too short! Gotta go pickup longer tomorrow morning so I can finish putting the truck back together.

Ended up pulling all the plastic off of the bumper and relocating the parking sensors to the grill guard. I can’t believe how much clearance is lost by plastic!!

Just don’t hit anything with it or it will cause even more damage to your truck. Needs a lift now!

Hopefully I won’t hit anything. Your right. This would cause some serious damage

Looks really good. I've seen several grill guards/push bars that look terrible on these trucks but this one looks like it belongs on there. Nice.
