Any valance tips! Pics plz?

Was wondering what pplz did for their valance, once they got a body lift and kept the tow hooks...I guess the only thing to do is cut the lower middle section down or out....but i dont know If i'd like that. Firstly, i'll just go without a valance, unless I see a better idea....
looking for bumpers from 98+ Rangers.
accepting all tips....

p.s., maybe I should hit the photoshop section?

This right here is the best option...

The same techniques used there can be used on the regular loop style steel hooks. NOT the cast hooks that came on like 98-99 trucks.


Or triming the valence for the hooks. I've only seen a couple turn out 'acceptable' to my eyes. Most others look like total ***.



oh yeah...we need a signature man. 01+ are fine with trimming. 98-00, their valence are so thin right there, you'd be better off leaving the valence off the truck. If you trim, I think the valence would just sorta fall the heck off or break thanks to wind resistance. lol.

I'm not worried bout what year, my truck is 98, but I can get any bumper style and valance..
and yes, your right as always lol....My last 98 Ranger had no valance(as bought) and today I just ripped the pass side off, snow bank in my driveway was a little more icey then thought lol
only thing is newer bumper styles use more valance, and I think cutting them would trash it, so I guess the 98 style bumper w/o a valance is a good start?
