Back By Popular Demand!!! The Valance! lol

I have had no front valance for almost 2 years now, put off getting a new one because I wanted something aftermarket or to fab something myself, but that hasn't happened because there isn't available to buy and I have been too busy/lazy to make one.
Every time I post a few pictures I always get asked about the valance (or lack thereof) and I was getting sick of looking at the rad and frame and everything myself so I picked up a new one yesterday and threw it on today after work. It's a big improvement but I'm still not used to seeing it like that. It only had a valance for 1 of the 3 years i've owned it and back then it was completely stock w/ a bug deflector.
Few Pics (now I will only get harassed about my black corners instead of both haha, but once I do the black headlamp mod they will look much better)

If they get painted they are going to be painted black! either flat black over the texture or sand out the texture and paint them gloss black. I don't want to bother with body color because as soon as I have an excuse to paint it the whole truck is going to be painted black or maybe really dark grey.

Haha, we have Christmas lights on our house too! Our landlords just bought this house when we moved in and the last owners of the house had them left up, and nobody has bothered to take them down. It's just as well to leave them up now!

Thanks
They are even really rare up here, they made very few. Mine is the only one I have ever seen, supposedly there is another one around the city somewhere but I have never seen it. I like that is different, there are sooo many rangers around here, and having something different than everybody else is better than having a one of a million built like it ranger.

thanks,
I figured it out after, I did go buy more fuses to replace it but just forgot about it.
It's nice having fog's again! Now when I get a HID kit i have to get one for the fog's too so they will match!

Thanks Shane,
Sounds good but I want to keep it a little more driveable, Superlift w/ 33's.
If I put in a superlift and let the t-bars off will it keep it around a 3" lift?

Well you're all gonna be happy because I ordered a set of clear corners yesterday! I need a set anyways so I can do the black mod on the to match the headlamps when I get around to doing them. But i will throw them on the way they are for a while anyways just for a change, and to shut you all up!! haha j/k
