What is the best brush guard?

I personally don't like that specific brush guard... I like the sport ones.. they look more complete and look a lot better for the Explorer.

Custom front bumper would be nice too..

OK, I know this is going to sound really dumb, but what is the "lower valance". Does anyone have a picture of one on and one off? Thanks!:usa:
 






Hold on one moment..
 






Here's a pic of my truck with the Manik back in the day.

I think the valence removed makes it look a bit meaner.

I don't think he has it installed anymore...

Hope these help show how it is mounted. There are 6 bolts and 2 crossbars on the bottome of the frame that attaches for strength and stability.

ok so from the looks of how this was mounted, you would have to take off the lower valence any way, right? so i guess it wont hang down far and look funny. is this how all (or most) are mounted on?
 






Some come down low, some are right under the bumper where the lower valance would normally cover.
 






Valence

I decided to leave mine off, gove me a bit more clearance for the rocks in the front.

I would have to do minimal trimming if I decided to put it back on
 






ok so i would just have to make sure when i buy it that i get the one that comes up close to the bumper and it would work and look good. Thanks for the help yall.
