My vote is the TX above the Ford logo, and the 2 standard heads mounted to the under side of the slat to the right and left of the ford logo. Do you have a photo that's more head on rather than at a slight inclination? The spacing between the two standard heads is going to have to be tweaked until you get JTG performance on the plate and headlights. Probably around 25" between the two sensors (measured from the inner edge of one to the inner edge of the other) is where the sweet spot will be.

Sorry, this is a photo from the web. But, the front end is identical to mine. I originally thought about the same spots as you, but it seems that may be too high to cover the lower portion of the front. BTW, we don't have front plates here, so that won't be an issue.

Thanks for the input.

I got a ride that looks to be larger than yours and it's fine in those position. At a lower position, you have to space the standard heads out a little more to cover the headlights. On certain rides, this causes some weird PT issues near the lower CM.

I agree with this.
Just remember when these are firing, the 'spread' is wide from far away when the sensors are activated. You're not getting pegged at 300 feet or less. Regardless, the ALP's will cover you pretty well.

Take PY004's advice on placement. We test cars together now and see what types of issues we run into. After conclusion of the testing we wind up fixing most of the issues that come to us.

Thanks guys! I appreciate your help.

Will the backup camera/sensor bother the TX head that will be mounted next to it?

Rather the backwards is true. The TX interferes with the camera! Lol something to be aware of so you don't make the mistake I did.

Edit: don't care about the license plate that's visible. Not my car anyways.

LOL Ok, I guess I now know what to tell the installer.

As long as the TX is not recessed, it should be fine.
