      Well, to be fair to those of us with ACC and really want to add the bar, its not answered anywhere in this thread bud. I read tue entire thread just now, first page to last.

      To be accurate, it states several opinions that it would seem to interfere. Peter gave the closest thing to an answer a couple pages back with a picture and white dot showing the location of sensor. So if you are tired of seeing this question come up, its mainly because no one has come on here and stated- your ACC is inoperable with the bullbar. I moderate several forums, and I do understand the frustrations with questions being asked over and over.

      So lets end this issue right now. we just tried it, and had to take it right back off. I suppose you might be able to disable the "ACC disabled warning" and just run without it, but Ive grown to appreciate it for all the driving I do. I dont see how it could be moved and have full confidence in a system that was designed to work in a certain position on a vehicle with also changing the software to account for the change in location. The bars all use the same mounting spots and I dont see where you could change that either without ruining the integrity of the bar. It seems its one or the other in this case.

      The Setina push bar looks awesome on these. If i cant get my hands on a 15' Base this summer I will be getting on for sure. I love the look of the interceptors in my area. especially once I can get 2 Fire Dept ghost lights mounted to it.

      I ordered my push bar back in December, and received it around the beginning of February. I was going to pay to have someone put it on, but finally decided to do it myself. I finally put it on yesterday, and it was a lot easier than expected.

      There were 7 10mm bolts up top along with 2 push pin type retainers. On the bottom, there were 9 or 10 8mm bolts to remove. There were 6 really small bolts to remove at each front tire. The grill and bumper can come off together as 1 piece.

      Boy, you are one fast worker.:D Nice job and nice to have the video also.:thumbsup: I can now see that it would definitely affect the Active Cruise Control feature for those that have it.

      I'm feeling it today. This getting old stuff... is for old people. I'll pop a few aspirins and lie down I think.

      Looking good :thumbsup:. We use the Setinas on our vehicles at work. Ive been looking to put the Aries 3065 full brush guard on my Ex but waiting to find a price that "feels right" enough for me to pull the trigger on it.

      Just ordered the Aries 3065 off amazon for mine. 308 shipped! Kills all the other prices online right now. They only have one left at that price for others interested. Someone that did a review on amazon stated that this would interfere with the ACC.

      Not surprised as that is what I've been surmising all along. I believe the ACC is located where I've placed the white dot using Go3Team's photo.

      That's quite the pushbar, how did affect your headlight output?

      The headlights on mine have always sucked, so I added a little something:

      Drove it for the first time at night last night. Noticed no difference from prior to the install. I have HIDs installed as well.

      That LED light bar probably REALLY helps!

      At least you did HID so that helps to offset any disrupting to the lighting.

      I'd be interested in seeing the light pattern up against a garage door or wall. It looks like those vertical bars would affect the horizontal light pattern.

      Peter, here's a shot up against the garage with fog lights off, as well as some others... Apologize for some of the quality. Broke my Samsung and stuck with a Windows phone until upgrade.

      I actually like the black horse bull bar BB047611-SP ..but I'm sure that will interfere with the ACC and the ground clearance isnt all that good either.

      Great video!! How's the LED bar working out? I checked Amazon with the one you might have and its around $50 and I have seen other brands for a lot more.

      It still works great. Before I installed it, I sprayed it down with black plastidip just in case the gasket was poo. It hasn't leaked at all, and all the LEDs still work. It's not as bright as I wanted, but it will still peel your retinas off.
