Front/Rear Parksense?
 
I read in the owners manual that the 2014 Jeeps come with front and rear Parksense sensors. When I pull into my garage I have to pull in to about 6" of the wall, I never get any type of warning when I do this. I always get a warning when backing out. I do have the Advanced cruise control that has the round sensor in the front. Does having the ACC option not allow me to have the front Parksense option?

Front park sensors are only available on the 2014 Summit and 2014 SRT I believe. It should be standard on Overland in my opinion. Maybe on the 2015 Overland...

What trim and options do you have? Front park assist are only STD on Summit... I guess they are optional on other trims... My 2014 Overland does not have it.

This, in part is why we passed on a 2014 Overland. They aren't even available as an option!

I called Jeep and spoke to a Rep, who said I am far from the first to complain about this. Maybe 2015 will bring change. One can hope.

Anyway to install the oem sensors on overland limited or Laredo that already has the rear sensors installed?

I figure they did this to give the Summit more exclusive features to make the model stand above the Overland feature wise.

I was told by the salesdroid that our Overland would have them if we got the Tech package. He didn't know what he was talking about. I should have compared the options between the Summit and Overland more thoroughly, but I didn't want a Summit anyway, because I couldn't get the 18s or an interior color I liked on it.

anyone tried to retro fit the front park sensors on an overland yet? not sure why it wouldn't actually work? is there a connection some where for it by chance?

I have the park sense on mine just not the front.
