    Anyone have read armor that maintains the factory sensors in the rear of a 2016+? All I am seeing that offers this is Fab Fours rear premium bumper. It looks alright, but its 150lbs. I really like the look of the CBI and it's a little lighter at 100lbs, but I don't see any options for rear sensors.

    Anyone have a list of the rear offerings that keep the sensors? Thanks.

    I believe C4 Fab retains both the parking sensors and BSM.

    Bruteforce retains sensors but not BSM

    I saw that. I think they are the only ones to retain both. I'll have to think on it, because their bumper just looks so bulky and out of place imo.

    BSM is a luxury. It goes out all the time on my truck. So it doesn't bother me that I'm getting a bumper that wont retain it.

    Yeah it definitely is a luxury, but it is extremely helpful imo. Great when backing out of spots in parking lots. I may just stick with the stock bumper but I was looking at ordering the left side bumper cover and getting it painted since mine is scuffed and has broken tabs. I'd just like a real back bumper....made out of, I dont know.....metal? Lol.

    I’m in the same boat, OP. Did some light wheeling today and broke part of the bumper. 791E9D7B-1F48-4A8B-83FE-E112D3E664C8.jpg

    Yeah it's too bad toyota went to a plastic bumper. Man, I just wish the C4 bumper was a little bit less bulky.
