I have installed one from the 2011 trucks, this valance hangs down about 7". It is not a direct fit and some trimming is needed to make it look good.

The part # BC34-17D997-BAW. I found mine on ebay, if you have a shop in your area that installs snow plows you could check with them as they remove this part during installation.
You have to trim (narrow) the part of the valance the mounts to the bumper, the newer one has a wider area. When you remove the old one you can see how much has to be remove. Starting in the center of the bumper you attach the valance, and then add holes in the valance to match the bumper. If you look at the pictures you will see the new valance has angles in it starting below the the tow hooks where the 2005 bumper is more curved. If you get a chance to look at a new truck you will see the difference.

Yea it was not a hard job. I had to install it a couple of times as I trimmed it to fit the curve of the bumper and transferred the hardware from the original valance. From a distance it looks like it came that way. Up close you can see where the valance sticks out a little below the tow hooks.
