Default Valence off!!

Finally got my front valence off.. I think it looks pretty rugged this way. Im likin the extra clearence and its nice bein able to back up w/o rubbing my tires. Don't worry though, my BL is goin in tomorrow. I'll get more pics when im done. But heres this update



And my flairs are gettin painted also as soon as its warm out.

Hell ya im gonna keep it that way.. I don't like the way the valence looked.. It looks more rugged this way and more like a mudder/prerunner rather than a street truck. And i think it makes it look a lot taller. Im also mounting some aftermarket fogs somewhere underthere so i don't loose my "stock" fogs since i took off my valence.

And...... its one less thing to paint...

Well i just tucked up the wires cuz i unplugged them from the fogs.. and ziptied them in place so they don't flop around. and then made sure the fog on/off button is off. Im gonna mount a set of lights under there and run the stock wiring to them so i can still have fogs down there and stuff..

haha mine were grey before. Krylon fusion for plastic satin black took care of it though.
as for the hole, it is really noticeable and its ugly. i don't really care about the look of it but what bothers me is since my mud terrains stick past the flare, it just throws so much crap inside there and gets all behind the flare. i have to hold the pressure washer in the hole to get all the mud out which is really annoying.


GROSS lol
