LVL II Valance

I need pictures of an 01-03 FX4 LVL II valance. I need to see how it's cut to fit around the hooks. Also pictures of how other people have cut their valance to put their LVL II hooks on. I need to know how I'm going to cut my valance to make my new hooks fit.

I've got them mounted. They've been mounted since last night. I just need to see how the contour on the valance that goes around the hooks.

Thanks Josh! Yea I just went ahead and cut it and kind of just eye-balled it. Just measured it and mine is 3/4". Once I get the other side cut I'll hold it up and see if it fits. If not I'll take it back off and trim it down to 1/2" instead.

I tried it about 10 times before I cut it and it wouldn't work. And the way it is now it looks pretty stock. It looks pretty good I think. I'll post some pictures up in the morning.

Oh and thanks for uploading that picture Trent. I was going to do it but I was in a rush because my laptop was about to die and I needed to hurry up and finish the bumper.

take a propane or map gas torch, and heat up a box cutter, and it'll cut that plastic easily. Just be careful and take your time.

I've already got it cut. I'm done fooling with it for now though. To cut it I just used a cutting wheel on the dremel then smoothed out the big stuff with the sanding wheel and used sand paper and a razor blade to get all the small stuff.

sweet! So you have to notch it even if you're not bodylifted? or can you bend the valance in at that area?
