You can paint it withoout removing it-that's how i did mine the first time. Just mask everything off really well, then cover the whole truck with the cheap plastic dropcloths and spray away. I used Krylon Fusion on mine, just be sure to clean and dry everything really well. Creating a sig with your truck's info will help you immensely on the forums.

I fixed it for you. It is an easy job, but prepping before paint is crucial.

If you wanna take it off there are like 7-10 screws holding it to the bumper, Find them and remove them and the valance will drop off, I took mine off to paint it because I dont trust myself masking the truck, lol
