Front Plastic Cowling Replacement

Does anyone know if there is an after market replacement for the wide front plastic cowling I have on my 2013 F350. I would like one like I had on my 08 which was much narrower.
Thanks

I'm assuming you're talking about the lower valance? If so, get the 2wd one, that's what I put on mine:

Thanks Matt.
That's what I am looking for. Where did you purchase yours and was it that difficult to change out?

Are you replacing for cosmetic or off roading ? I never noticed that the 2wd and 4wd was different til now!

For both.
I don't like the look and I plan to purchase a truck camper in the near future and plan to be off road camping.

The difference between the 2 valances - 2wd is 4 3/8" wide, 4wd is 7 1/2" wide.

I bought from my local dealer, the box is ridiculously huge so the shipping was outrageous from anyone online. I don't have the receipt easily accessible to pull the part number, just let them know you want the valance from the 2wd, same year of your truck.

Installation was easy once I figured out you have to push the center of the plug out to pop it out, other than that, a few screws and it's done.

Thanks, Matt.
A lot of little things different on the 13 KR compared to the 08 6.4 KR.
Overall I am please with the truck but I do miss the old real leather seats.

I've heard the KR leather quality has suffered/changed from previous years, which is too bad since the overall costs of the trucks continue to rise.

This truck is my first truck with leather (growing up in AZ, you learn to stay away from leather) so I don't have anything to compare the leather in my Lariat with, but it seems alright, makes cleaning up after the kids much easier than cloth, that's for sure.
