Alright, this has been eating at me for a couple of days now, Asinatra what do you do for a living? How at 18 years old can you afford a brand new F150? Did you get a great deal, graduation gift what?

Backstopper CA5012A

I didn't order the reverse sensing on my Lariat. Wish I had. So I researched the WEB and found a good, reasonably priced product, the Backstopper, model CA 5012A from Crimestopper. It has four sensors, is wireless from the back to the front and comes with a drill bit. The F150 already has two holes near the license plate. You still have to drill through the plastic and two holes in the bumper. I went to a Ford dealer nearby and measured the location of one of the F150's with reverse sensing and used that as my template. Once you drill the holes in the bumper, I recommend using touch up paint on the bare metal before you put in the sensors. Will keep it from rusting. Overall the job took about 1 hour and 15 minutes to complete. The hard part was pulling the wires. I connected it up and it works like a charm. Actually better than the OEM. It beeps, gives you the distance to an object and tells you whether it is on the right or left side. I adapted the guage to plug into the 12v outlet behind my console and hid the wires from the plug to just in front of the shifting lever. I am glad I installed it, especially since you have about 50' of blind space given the higher bed. Go on line and check it out.
