Brushgaurds and a lift

I am looking to put a 2 inch body lift on a 99 question is will I be able to install brushgaurds on it with the body lift?

You will have to cut the mounting points and lower them if it connects to the frame. If it connects just to the bumper, no.

Re: Brushgaurds and a lift

My body lift for my '98 truck came with square brackets to bring the bumper up to the rest of the body. Since brush guards don't typically provide any true structural support, you might do OK with the frame, blocks, bumper then brush guard...

Re: Brushgaurds and a lift

Let me restate. The body lift will (should) move the bumper up also with brackets or box tube like mine. My pre-runner bumper mounted to the frame and the stock bumper. I had to cut the tabs that went to the frame and lower them down. Not a big deal if some one has a welder. Either way you should be able to make it fit with very little modifying.
