Curt Front Receiver and Aries Brush Guard install

I recently picked up a used Aries 1048 (I believe) brush guard used for $50. I also want to install a front receiver to use with a portable winch when needed. The Curt 31056 front receiver is made for the Commander and is on Amazon for $165. I haven't ordered it yet but I'm getting close. I just got off the phone with Curt product support and the outside dimensions of the receiver with mount brackets is 29.25". I measured inside the brush guard mounts at 29.6" or so. It looks like bolting the brush guard to the receiver brackets should work good. Does anyone have any thoughts on this idea or has anyone done it before?

Assuming I move forward with the project I'll post install pictures and progress.

I've been considering on trying to finding one of those grill guards (used) and mating it up with my 4xGuard matrix to give my head lights some protection from branches. The matrix setup I put on has the front receiver. Let us know how it works out.

Up4XK, I noticed you have a thread asking about dimensions of the brush guard, assuming that's what mine is, let me know what measurements you need and I can send them to you.
