Default valence tearing off

so i dropped my ranger into a nice deep rut and got it stuck when i got pulled out from the back it yanked the valence loose on the passengers side i straightened out the pieces that hold it on and knocked it back into place. unluckily every damn time i back up in mud it pulls the stupid thing back out. any ideas on a fix? rednecking is ok as long as it cant be seen from the outside.

i feel u bro i went out mudding and just about ripped the whole damn thing off. i ripped it off at the corners and it looked liked my truck was sad, so i nig riged it with some zip ties they held for 2 years or so then i replaced the zip ties with screws and washes that fuckers not going any were now. yea it looks a little red neckish but it works till u have the money for a new one. buy the way u cant tell unless ur staring at the bumper.
