:stupid What he said^ and you would still need the '01-03 fog lights.

ok so i need an 01-03 Edge valance, perferably black so i dont have to paint it, and it will bolt up to my bumper with no problems? i m going to call around the local junkyards to see if anyone has one, hopefully i can get the fog lights with it. whats the easiest way to hook up the lights, keep in mind my factory fogs still dont work from trying to do the foglight mod (i dont know what happened with that ive tried everything, they still wont work) and everything should be good, right?

You can get a 01-03 valance at Certifit for 45 bucks and it will match pretty good. You can kinda see it in this pic, this is unpainted straight black plastic from Certifit:

I like that flat black a little better on your truck. I think it looks better.

How much was the check for? Maybe you can claim the fog lights not working on the accident? Did you check the fuse from when you attempted the mod?

Yeah its worth it, the parts are twice as much on eBay. The stuff is good quality too.

A grille, header panel, bumper, valance and fog lights was like 250ish maybe.
