Default Front Valance

Hey all, I want to change the front end. I'm thinking the chrome 4x4 bumper with an edge valance. Does the edge valance fit with the 4x4 bumper? I would get the full front end of a 4x4, but I'm thinking I want to paint the valance to match the truck. Suggestions?

The main reason I'm getting rid of my current bumper is because the previous owner cut holes in it for ugly aftermarket fogs and two squares underneath that for who knows what.

Damn! Are they really that hard to come by? You're just looking for a 2WD front end right?

4x4.

The 4wd valance is different then the 2wd valance.

That is because the edge 2wd is the same as a edge 4wd. You have everything a 4wd has minus the 4wd components.
