If you have the pre-collision sensor in the grill emblem you are not going to be able to do a brush guard of any type. I have also heard a lift or leveling kit will mess it up too but have no experience.

I put a set of airbags in the rear of mine and haven't had any issue but I only keep 10 lbs in them if I am not pulling a loaded trailer.

Just something to think about before you spend your money.

Yeah thatís part of why I asked. With a 3Ē leveling kit on mine that was recommended I put weight on it and squats pretty bad.

Anyone know anyone with info about the fabtech 4.5” lift? I like the idea of not having the drop bracket between front tires for a little more clearance.

This one. Works amazing. Had 8000 pounds of feed on a 1500 pound trailer with 50 pounds of air in the bags. Truck wasn't squatted. Tires were but truck still was above level in the back.
