As your Ford F-150 is built with toughness and roughness in mind, it is expected to withstand any form of road debris along the road. But given the possibilities of driving over uneven surfaces or rough terrain, even the biggest trucks cannot be totally prepared. One good accessory that you can add to your truck's bumper is a valance. It gives your truck added protection from damage-causing elements especially when driving on dirt roads. Aside from that, it adds a new look to your F-150's bumper and a space where you can mount some auxiliary lights or even a tow hook.
If a Ford F-150 has an installed brush guard to protect the bumper, is there still a need to install a valance?
Answer: While a brush guard makes the F-150 look more masculine and macho, a valance conceals the structural details of the lower bumper, making it appear sleeker. If aesthetic value and style is not a huge concern, then installing a valance could be for the purpose of protecting the lower bumper especially for lowered trucks or SUVs. Valance can be also attached to different locations other than the front bumper to avoid redundancy with the brush guard. It can be installed on the front passenger side, front driver side, or rear of the vehicle.
What is the best material of valance to be used in a usually rugged Ford F-150?
Answer: Valances can be made from plastic, aluminum, steel, or urethane. Though steel is more expensive than aluminum, it is assured to be durable but a bit heavy in terms of weight. A urethane valance is known to withstand extreme temperature changes but it is a bit expensive due to its durability. An aluminum valance, both durable and cheap is a rather safe choice compared to the less durable and lightweight plastic. If durability is the utmost concern, a valance made from urethane material could be your best option.
If a valance is installed on a Ford F-150 for aesthetic purposes, are there various types of finishes to choose from?
Answer: Since installing a valance to enhance the Ford F-150 is the major concern, then the buyer should make the best out of it. Valance finishes could be raw, primered, chrome, textured, gray, or polished. When buying a valance, one should keep in mind if it will complement the other parts of the car. Considering the color of the bumper is also important when buying a valance to ensure a perfect match.
