Removing/Installing lower valance

Hey everyone,

I am ordering a new front valance for my truck because my old one is in such bad shape. How hard is it to get the old valance off from the bumper and install the new one?

Thanks!

Remove the bolts under the bumper. There's like 8 bolts. And just unclip the ends of the valance. It's like a 5 min job.

As long as all the valance bolts aren't super rusty they will be cake. I'm guessing you will be fine if it's an Alabama truck.

Like the others have said, it's a matter of eight bolts. If you lay on your back under the truck you will see which ones they are. With the clips you have to be carefull that you don't break them. What I found easiest was to take pliars and pinch them and pull out on the valance at the same time.
