theres a crossmember behind the bumper, its less then 6" away from the stress points so it should be ok.

but, you never know, it might be a good idea with all stuff done to it.

I have added 3 crossmembers to the frame already. plus the stock one up front and the sway bar. the front of the frame wont tweak. Now the rear... its in some need of dire work.

it looks awesome zach
and for scratching the valance, if ur stuck bad enough or at all, i dont think a scratch on the valance will really worry you, i'd rather get the truck out with a scratch rather then have no hook up point.
like at the dunes, ill bet thoes hooks would have came in handy rather then destroying the front crossmember and having to cut it out and rebuild.
its just plastic.

if you really wanted to fix it you could cut to lines where the hooks are so the plastic will just bend up if a strap pushes on it. when there is no tension then the valance will lay flat again.
i'd just leave it tho.

I buy my steel from a place called Metal Supermarket. I am sure you have something like that down there.
