On or off

Im really confused if i should keep my valence on or off. Personally i think it looks tough without the valence but then it shows my ac condensor. But when i put it back on it looks alright but not as tough haha. Im so confused, btw do you think if i got a skid plate it would look alot better with the valence off? Are the Ford skids good?

on, i'd only take it off to go off roading, then put it right back on. Even at that point I think its questionable.

I would leave it on for now..
Perhaps down the road if you get a lift and some good meaty tires.. then it may give you the look your wantin gwith it off... but for now definitely keep it on..!

Maybe with a front reciever and some big *** tow hooks under it, painted black you can make it work with the valance off.

Right now I see too much radiator.
