honestly....i've ran with my valence JUST being held on by the factory snap thingys on the 'ears'.

put the pieces on the valence, i like to pop the valence in the bumper one side at a time, then running the 8 bolts or whatever. factory,the bolts are like 8mm x 1.25 or someting....id probably be cheaper to get those Jnuts or whatever they're called in 1/4" and use 1/4x1 bolts.

the ears sorta snap into place with a gentle punch of the fist.



Here's a view of the inside installed on the bumper...


Here's a better close up of them..this time the side that has all four.

Ooh, good pics. I see now what the clips I have are lacking. That little tab w/ a bend that secures it once popped into the slots of the bumper. I'm going to have to find that kind or it won't stay I bet. Besides those, i'm fairly sure the rest of my hardware will transfer. The valance is attached to the bumper by speed nuts from what I could see. And there are corner reinforcements. All that (hopefully) will bolt right up.

Can anyone tell me where to get these clips from? Also, what clips and screws are used to hold the valance to the bumper?

I went and looked at another truck that had them. I see the unuts on the bumper. I think I can get those from the hardware store...

Do you know if the local Ford dealers have the clips that you posted the pics of? Maybe a Ford part# would be helpful.

These are a little different shape but they look like they will work.

I think the OHC retainers may be smaller.

I called the dealer and they gave me the part number and told me there are 8 clips required. The part number they gave me is N623332-S2.

I searched the number and I found this:
http://shop.autodiscountfasteners.co...&productId=945

Although I may need those I am trying to find the clips that go on each end of the bumper.

I am heading to the dealer in the morning, guess we'll see what they have... to be continued.

I could probably get part numbers from my local ford hook up on those 'ear' clips on each side of the valence.



Any hardware store would carry something like those u-nuts....factory on the trucks is metric 8 x 1.25? i believe. it's fine thread. BUT...it'd be ALOT cheaper to go a standard size from the hardware store. They need to be 'long reach' u-nuts to clip onto the metal bumper. The bolts that go into them are the same bolts for your hood, your fender mounting bolts, under the plastic at hte knee pad that holds the sheet metal thing under the steering column...those bolts. gold in color. I could probably get part number for those and the bolts too.

I see some people changing their front ends and adding bumper/valances. Where does everyone get the hardware from?

I've been trying the part # on some Ford part sites and it's not found. I even tried to search it in Google and got nothing. Do you know if it can be found anywhere online?

FYI I FOUND THE PART NUMBER AT FORD FOR THE CLIPS IS INCORRECT. IT GETS YOU A BOLT. NO ONE AT FORD SEEMS TO KNOW HOW NOR CARES TO CORRECT IT. I FINALLY WENT TO A COMPANY "FASTENALL" AND PURCHASED A BOX OF CLIPS "BUMPER GRILL" CLIPS FOR A DODGE. THEY ARE A LITTLE THICK, BUT WITH A TAP IF A HAMMER, THEY FIT. ANYBODY HAVE ANY SUGGESTIONS FOR THE EASIEST WAY TO REPLACE THE WHOLE VALANCE? MINE WAS BROKEN UP AND I PRCHASED A REPLACEMENT AT LMC TRUCK FOR $78.

You are not the first to not find them. I have been on the internet looking everywhere all day! Can't find anything close to them!

Where did he get these clips from? I looked around and the only ones I find are individual clips.
