any decent front parking sensor options

So my wife tells me shes used to the front sensors on the minivan we had when exiting the garage.
Jeep left them out for reasons unknown.

Anyone know of any solutions for front sensors that are minimally invasive?

I've heard there are wireless ones, ones that require no holes in the bumper, etc..
any experience or ideas on this?

Re: any decent front parking sensor options

The tech package includes a front sensor, right? You ought to be able to pillage the parts bin from that to get what you need.

Tech Package only adds front radar for the cruise control. It adds extra sensors in the rear bumper for the cross path detection.

You can add a front camera if you install lockpick

More concerned about the corners instead of front.

Camera in the front is overkill IMHO.

Re: any decent front parking sensor options

Other options:
Hang a tennis ball from a string to hit the windshield (old school grandma version)
Install those speed bump parking assisters (skymall?)
Use eyes (as mentioned)
Always back into the garage (utilize rear sensors)

Let us know what you choose.

Re: any decent front parking sensor options

Duct tape some small rodents to the bumper. When you hear the squeaking/squishing, STOP.
