Default 2001 2WD XLT Lower Valance with Fogs

I've been looking around for a lower valance for my 2WD XLT, but it seems like all lower valances with fogs are for the 4x4 and will not fit on my current model. Any suggestions on what to look for or where to look?

This is what I currently have (holes are from the previous owner who cut into the stock bumper to add aftermarket fogs... it looked pretty bad):



And this is similar to what I am looking for:




Is something like this even available for the 2wd?

Thanks for your input!

This one u gotta buy the upper bumper also. The one with the black bumper is cheaper.

Check this place out. Lots of things here for all year/sub model Rangers. This page shows some valances for your 2001 3L. Toll free number should hopefully be able to give you advise on fogs and such too. OEM style fogs are not much here I noticed before. Lots of interior dress-up stuff too. eg:dash covers. Fenders, rear quarters,tailgates,etc.also

Honestly though I can't vouch for the quality of the parts having gotten nothing from here. Maybe someone else has? Toll-free call ask about the warranty/fit/etc. But a new valance for 60 bucks. Notice the CAPA certified ones at the bottom.

Also I doubt that a valance is much different for a 4WD vs 2WD...in terms of how it fits and bolts on. Your nearest Ford dealer should be able to answer that question.

Same place bumpers for a 2001 XLT

Why a bumper if the valance is made for his truck?

Thanks. Drop the valance/fog idea? One valance there is for his, but with no fogs. Behind the grill Hellas wouldn't work well with his style grill. Or go for the bumper change.

Thanks for the input you guys. I'm considering dropping the idea since it might look strange with the extra piece going up the side when I don't have the fender flares to continue. Do you know if the edge front bumper would work or if they even came in this dark blue?

Hm... not bad. I thought they came out more than that on either side. Thanks for the photos!

if you do not want to buy the bumper as well, buy the valance and just cut-off the tabs at the end that go up. I have seen it done, looks fine.

The EDGE/Sport had the same bumper, but painted.
