Bumper Replacement

I have an '02 XLT 4.0 ext cab. I have the stock bumper without the factory fog lights. My bumper is dinged up and I would like to change it to a four-wheel drive version so I can have the fog/driving lights.

My question is is can I do this by myself or is this an absolutely two-person job. I am a newb so this is why I am asking. I have no problem with the wiring, I just want advice on going from a 2wd to a 4wd bumper change.

you can do it by yourself if you have a jack stand or two. but its easier to do with two people.

Ok. My other question would be if I need to put the valance on before bolting it on to the vehicle or can I do that afterward. I can borrow a neighbors jack and I do have jack stands. I do appreciate very much any advice. Thank you StxDangerRanger!

You can put them on separately i believe. the valence just has a few push clips and two or 3 bolts that hold it to the bumper.
I used to put them on by myself all the time, Not on rangers, but on trucks and what not in general. Just get one side close and stick the jack under it, then go to the otherside and attach that side, and work your way over.
