park Assist Sensors for the front
 
My BMW had the park sensors on both the front and rear bumpers and it was very convenient for parking.

I was thinking of getting the senors and mount them into the front bumper. My thought would be to wire them into the same wire harness for the rears and then just mount a small switch to give them power when i am in a parking situation.
I tried looking at the wiring diagram for the park assist on rambodybuilder.com, but couldn't find any wiring diagrams...I am thinking this would be possible, but thought i would throw it out there to see if anyone had some more insights on this mod.

Thanks

If i were you & had a radio with a screen
i would buy either a NAV-TV MYGIG or the ALLGIG adapter harness & a front camera
Then use both front & rear cameras to park in tight spots

The wiring schematics are close to the same for the 2009 - 2012, i know they have the 2009 diagrams, not sure about the newer models

Interesting idea. I've wondered about this too. It's be great to know how close I a to garage door the car in front of me when parking. Let us know how it goes.

My front end parking sensor is called "wife"

I've had my truck for a little over a year now and I'm really starting to get a good feel for where the front bumper is.

Had my '99 dakota for 12 years and I could park that thing with my eyes closed.

I would just do the front parking camera thing as well. Seems liek it would be an easier install and easier to trouble shoot if something ever went wrong??

That sounds like a great idea.....Let us know how it works out and keep us updated.....

I'm thinking the camera would be easier too but at the same time, a camera in the front is more likely to get hit by flying debris.

I can e-mail you the schematic if you'd like just pm me and let me know

can an instruction be posted on the front sensor mod/add on? the 2500 don't have front sensors but I'd really want to add some but have it integrated to the in dash display like the 1500 if possible.

id like to do the front sensor instead too please post the mod here...

with the lockpick that damn front camera will come up automatically EVERYTIME you drive below 8mph. thats great when you parking head in but how about every time you come to a red light or stop sign? annoying...i bet.

besides thats the reason i ALWAYS park in reverse because of the sensors AND camera. much easier to park in reverse and makes for a QUICKER GETAWAY!!!!
