Lower Valance Mod

Did this today, we had excellent weather( in the 60s) I used some trip tape to mount some fasteners and I hope it holds up... the top is stuck in thier by the metal frame pinching it to the valance...

hows it look?

Get that front plate off of there! They add drag which decreases fuel economy. If ya don't need one, it's pointless to have. [/rant]

The mesh looks good! You need to pull out the factory mesh and use the same stuff to match or paint the mesh in the lower valance black. It looks nice, just stands out a bit more than it should.

hmm... i like it, but it doesnt really go with any of the other grille inserts, as theyre all black. have you thought about maybe painting it black to tie in better with the truck?

Only if you paint the grill and fog light surrounds to match. IMO...
