All you have to do is mod your bumper (i.e. cut it) on the ends so the valance fits.

Yes, YOU would have to cut YOUR bumper so that it resembles that 4wd bumper. Of course, if you cut it, that piece where the upper lip of the valence clips to the bumper would be gone, but you can attach the valance to the bumper via zipties.

People with 2wd bumpers use this method so the bumper isn't so wide on their truck. Because the 4wds have fender flares so the sides stick out a little more.

You guys don't want my bumper lol. Its not so straight anymore. After being twisted back twice I'd say its pretty much done. And as for my valence you can have it but I already cut it to fit my tires and hacked out the front for my tow hooks. As for the wall I would give it a shot again. Even though Nothing I've done to my truck would help me lol. Would just give it a little more gas this time.

hahaha yeah actually in theory your center of balance was lower before so now you might not do as well on the wall...

as for the fog light mod ill trade you my modded box for your stock one to try it out, since i dont have fog lights anymore lol. then if it doesnt work out i can give you the stock one back.
