I picked up a Westin brush guard (model unknown) from a junk yard for $75.00 and modified it to fit my Westin Winch mount. It came out pretty good considering I have 2.5 hours in it.

Your winch is going to rip that thing right off of your truck.

It will be fine...the winch is not mounted to the brush guard, the winch is in its own mount, mounted to the frame. The brush guard is bolted to the winch mount. I'm not off roading with the truck, the winch is there for getting out to where we live in the winter. The addition of the brush guard did not really change the approach angle that much.

before the brush guard

Yep. Had no idea there was even a light up there behind my head, much less a switch on it.

Also, waxed and applied armor-all again.

I've read enough about corrosion of the LCA bolts to be worried. I had the dealer apply the undercoating but it doesn't look like the LCA bolts were touched. My truck is still new, only about a month old. Could I spray a surface protector on to guard against corrosion or do I really need to pull them out and grease the heck out of them?

Still new?
Put tape on the crossmember at the alignment mark, mark the tape at the alignment mark, remove bolt, grease well, reinstall, enjoy rust-free year or two.
Repeat in a couple of years if you don't live in an area prone to rust.

new shoes!

16x8 König Countersteers installed. Helps to push the tire away from the UCA after I had the lift installed. Drives like a dream. Alignment to be done tomorrow!

Were they hard to install? Have to drill any holes? Now that I have a lift, and I'm only 5'4" it's hard to get the hood up high enough to get that damn stick thingy in the hole!

You'll need to drill a few holes but nothing too bad. One of the best mods you can do IMHO. Cheap too.

4 holes in the hood, 4 holes in the fender.
Measure 4 times, drill once.

You will need a pop-rivet tool that can handle the large rivets, and the drill bit needed for those rivets is an odd size, but you can go next size smaller and egg it out.

I didn't have to cut any bumpers, or sub bumper structure, or drill any holes in the frame, it bolts into existing frame holes. Like I said earlier, this truck isn't going to be used for hard core off roading so approach angle isn't a concern for me. The winch is more for emergencies than anything else...

Not off the shoulder on the grass - part of the shoulder. It was *maybe* about 12 feet long and 4 feet wide? But it was far deeper than expected, and the bottom started to give way. The truck listed enough to give me a little shot of adrenaline and that 'oh shit' feeling. Felt the rear start to dig and lose traction in 2wd (diff was unlocked). 4wd pulled me out without issue, but wow, any unsuspecting car is going to high-center on that or at least get well and truly stuck for sure.
