    I'm trying to help a guy find the best suited jammer for his area, which is Indianaplois, carmel area.

    with his permission this is his car, and ive gotten some really good feed back from some of the members here on locations. I just need to know what kind of guns they use. He has gotten two lidar tickets in the last three weeks.
    I told him the two best are the ALP's and the new TMG'S..
    the yellow circle is one of my concerns with a three head system. sorry for the crude editing, all i could so with my phone.

    It's gotta suck to cut into that expensive grill.

    Are there any aftermarket grill options? I did that on Bones. Got a discount grill from JWhitney and stored the old one. Then come sell time I pulled the stock grill and replaced it. I know the Lexus will be more than $75 but you never know till you look.

    Yeah, poke around and see what aftermarket options there are. It takes the sting out of cutting up a perfectly good grill.

    Agreed definitely gonna have to cut (or aftermarket grill) for that one... Three regular ALP heads in a line just below the emblem, or two RX and one TX in the three head location you currently have should work fine. I can't say for sure on the TMG's as there hasn't been a lot said about the best coverage, a two head should cover it. in which case the two lower heads on that three head diagram you made would probably do fine.

    I did some quick poking around and it doesn't appear there much on the LC/RC product line for grills yet. They've got chin splitters, ground effects and diffusers covered but not much in the grill department. Looks like most guys are pulling the grill and just plasti-dipping them right now.

    all my experince with head placement is talking to you all, but that grill seems a little tricky

    Agreed, there is no way to avoid cutting it, then placing the heads sticking out a little from it a little. that front grill is just not a good one for an easy jammer install.

    Worse than that the rake is so radical, fabricating a replacement will be a serious undertaking. Almost makes that vehicle a non-starter for me.

    that's pretty good, but would that cover all the way across?

    Oh I agree. I'd be modifying it in a heartbeat. I had to cut mine too to mount the three front sensors, but my car wasn't as expensive, so it was a little easier.

    I don't see why not.. three sensors F1, F2, F3 should do it. The real question is clearance.

    so dumb question, the three head v i guess it depends on where the headlights are if the upside down v is better? and as i look at your pic more, do the outer fog lights concern you, or would someone have to be using a mount to get a good shot? @markxyz
