The flares are Bushwacker cut-out flares. I've always seen the application guide as saying only up to 2000 model year, but they work fine on my 2002.
The flares come with instructions on how to determine what to cut. You use the flare itself as a template to mark the body. It's pretty simple. You can then cut the pieces off with a grinder with a cutting wheel on it, or a sawzall or whatever.
As far at the bumper and valance, you can determine what look appropriate when have the front flare on. At the point you can just fake it on one side then make the other side match.
On mine, I removed the valance a long time ago. But the ear that sticks out from the bumper where the valance went on, I sawed all of that off. You don't need to remove that much though -- probalby an inch or inch and a half would be plenty at the bottom and curving up from there to match the flare.
