On my 2013 XLT I often have a bike rack attached to the trailer hitch receiver on the back. With the rack on, the sensors sound off unless I hit the button when prompted. It is annoying and would love to have the dealer turn them off. I just don't know if the sensors can be turned off.

Lets try this photo thing again. I used photobucket but I guess picked the wrong link...I always struggle with this for some dumb reason.
I saw your picture in the first post. Not sure why Biohazrus didn't get it. FYI, I deleted it in this reply.

Finally found a hard core push/brush/winch capable Hella horn, pitbar. I have never seen a battle ready pit bar on any sports before. They look baddass on the mopars though. The complete duty package is 3 different kits. The heavy duty push bar and pit bar are from setina. The headlight protection unit/brush guard are from black wolf racing.

It took me about 6 hours to install by myself. Everything fit perfectly. Also ported grill so airbox can have the big gulp.

Pic of the push bar looks better and more proportionate than the setina.

Looking good, may have to add this to my xsport in the future wants list.

Don't forget that these bars may and have blocked front sensors and in particular the Active Cruise Control radar unit.

I'm not sure why there isn't an Image Attachment feature enabled on this forum but here is the finished product of today's install.

hey I purchased the setina pb400 from fleet safety for my 2013 ford explorer limited, and the bumper won't fit because the brackets sits too wide, any advice?

After driving the lifted 250 for 8 years I forgot how nice it was to drive a vehicle that didn't friggen punish you.





So far I only have:

Tint on front two
Setina push bar
Weather Tech mats
Shark fin antenna

Welcome to the Forum Steve.:wave:
Thanks for posting the video. Do you find that the 'guard' interferes with the Forward Collision and or the Adaptive Cruise Control radar?

Any ideas for mounting a winch? I don't figure the push bars would hold a hard strait line pull.
I have a winch mount for a hitch receiver but I want to be able to pull from the front. I thought about putting a receiver up front (CURT makes them) but I want a bar for the front. Ugh..
The options for these more than capable explorers is so friggin limited!

I bet a custom made tube bumper would cost an arm and a leg!

Hey all! I have a 2017 Ford Explorer Sport. So far I've put in a 3" lift, reflex shocks, 18" steel rims, and threw some nitto ridge grapplers on it. She handles great on the trails. I'd like to get a push bar for the front and some rock sliders. Any recommendations?

Welcome to the Forum Thomas.:wave:
What you will likely find is that the push bar will interfere with the Forward Collision Warning System and the Adaptive Cruise Control if you have that. It will also probably affect the sensors in the bumper.
