I wanna see pics.

Go ahead and run it like that for a while, a lot of people run like that permanently. I ran like that for a week or so when i was working on my truck.

you should just be careful, because without the lower valence, you just run a risk of a rock or some debris getting thrown off of the road into your radiator

Scott, you need to fab something up, for under your stock bumper, that'll look killer.

I broke two of the bumper bolt mounts while mudding (Got ripped out from behind, mud caught the valance)

So I took to off and plastic welded the pieces back on, and I like the look of it without the valance. Gonna get a procomp light bar and a skid plate, and be done with it.
