unofficial update, it is going to be around $1200.00 dollars to add, $300 sensors, $350 bumper cover(US dealers don't have because it s not offered in the states) , paint and install around $550. I am ok without sensors but when dollars come available I will probably do the install.

Re: Adding forward Parksense on Overland?

While we gain the front parking sensor on the Summit we lose the ability to remove the lower front fascia for off road.

You also lose some angle of attack.

I must be the oddball on the forum then - I hate parksense with a passion. The camera is nice when I'm backing into my space at home since I park my motorcycle behind my Jeep...but other than that, I usually turn the sensors off when I'm backing in anywhere. I can see just fine with my mirrors and the camera, even when I'm parking next to a pillar in the parking garage at work.

LOL I guess everyone has different likes, the parking sensors on the front and back of my summit are one of my favorite features I can put that jeep in the tightest of spaces. I have a challeger rental for the next few days and really miss those sensors it's hard as hell to see out of this car backing it in tight areas. I just keep the volume turned low on them on the jeep.

Re: Adding forward Parksense on Overland?

The park sensors are not just for the driver to have an "easier" time backing into a space. They can be very valuable in parking lots where "considerate folks" drive to fast and ignore things like backup lights and vehicles moving out of parking spaces... Saved my bacon a few times for sure...

Re: Adding forward Parksense on Overland?

Why not add a front camera for considerably less than the cost of front parking sensors retrofit ? (If only people searched: it was just as costly in 2013 when I looked into it...)

Re: Adding forward Parksense on Overland?

The park sensors only look directly behind. It's the tech package with the blind spot and cross path detection that alerts you to vehicles and pedestrians about to cross your path while in reverse.

Re: Adding forward Parksense on Overland?

Hammer', yes that's technically true, but my vehicle doesn't differentiate something behind or behind and off to the side when it comes to the audible warning...hence, me lumping them together. Both functions are a requirement for me.

Yeah I wish my 15 Overland had the front sensors and the H&K system but I didn't want to fork up the extra money for a Summit at the time. A few months later the High Altitude package is available with both options...go figure.
