Bah, who needs a valence.

Get a pre-runner bumper and call it done.

I'm always seeing Edge valences on ebay for around $60. Most are painted....all have MINOR scratches....but if you offroad frequently, it shouldn't be a problem.

is this what you did, or did you rip off the ENITRE thing? if this was all the damage, it can be fixed

I ripped mine off as well and just mounted a set of Hellas where the stock fogs used to be and all is good. I'll be building a new bumper soon. My 2000 XLT has a lot more bumper and a lot less valence than the newer ones tho and it actually looks pretty good.

If she does it enough, she may learn not to wear light colored clothing when doing it -- unless she's really good at stain removal, lol! :p ESPECIALLY if she's been mudding a lot!
