Which Bumper Valence

This morning I was looking at the bumpers and fenders and I found these:


This one is Gen 1


This is Gen 2

Isn't my Truck Gen 3? I'm not too sure...

No valance is the best valance! (Well, I'm biased by having constantly detached mine offroading...)

I don't think either of those valances will fit, I would recomend going with a gen3 4x4 valance, you wil gain 2 nice size fog light holes.

Im going have to go with Q on this one...the Gen3 4x4 looks much better and the big a$$ foglight openings are always a plus

Given enough effort I'm sure it could be made to happen. Somebody recently posted photos of a Ranger that had an entire gen5 front end on a gen3 or 4 Ranger, except the valance! It was actually a very cool look. I swore it was just a gen3/4 valance bolted to a newer Ranger until someone pointed out the TTB front end just barely visible. Very funky.. Given a will there is always a way!

If you lived by me I'd give you my old one for 10 bucks. bought it at a swap meet then ripped it off in the woods. It's kinda long and awkward to ship
