which valance looks best?

Question.....What is the first part on a 98-00 to be sacrificed on a good wheelin adventure????

The front valance?.....Correct!!

I ripped my stock one off the very first time I took mine off road.Since then I have ripped it off so many times I just ran four screws into it so I could take it off when I would go out. The factory fog lites didnt live past that first trip.Lately I got sick of messin with it so I have been rockin the missin valance look and didnt seem to care. Seems everyone I run into makes a comment about it missing and tell me it looks like crap without one.So I came up with the idea to try a 2wd valance since they dont hang down as far and will be less likely to get hung up on stuff and get ripped off.

Here are a few shots...before,after,after,after and AFTER. What one looks best to you guys?

The 4wd would look the best if it had fog lights. However since it doesn't, I like the look of the 2wd valance better than no valance.

I do also...that will be the way I drive it for a while I think.

Skid is my own design,works awesome.I do a lot of winter wheelin and I made it to protect my rack and lines from ice chunks.

Or, I would run no valance, and cut the tabs off the bottom of the bumper where the valance use to bolt on to so it is straight all the way across. I think that would look awsome and be easy to do.
