Yeah considering it is a 4x4 valance. I think it looks good on either, but Im a little biased.

Hitting some deep water with that thing might be a problem. I feel like I push a lot of water when I go through some deep stuff. Could that be from a valance, maybe just something to think about.

I think it looks awesome on that EX and prolly would on yours as well.

I usually would think of it on a street truck,but would look good on either, I would just worry about ripping it off when off-roading.

Have to agree with Trigger01; using that valance on a trail vehicle will only put the lights and the valance in harms way....
I have witnessed numerous 97+ Jeep Cherokees damage or even crush the factory foglights or their valance on the trail when they come in contact with rocks or trees.
Safer and less expensive in the long run to put offroad lights up above the bumper.

OR 4x4
