I sometimes wish I had that, but at the same time I don’t carry a fob and I’m not sure how I feel about the sensor.

Would be nice though. I’m SOOOOOOO over opening the back, closing it, and as I’m walking to my door seeing my mirrors fold in. Every dang time….. Requires using my door code to get it opened.

I just didn’t want to pay ? for premium but I did like this feature.

For me it was 7/10 because I was the Guinea pig but I did a write up and I think it can done in 1-1.5 hour and 5/10 difficulty.

Awesome! a great addition for folks that want the auto liftgate. It is a nice feature. How much was the kit? Where did you order it from? What was the hardest install part? Thanks for sharing.

Retails for $700; hardest part was routing cables through grommet; luckily I worked with manufacturer to redesign the location of the control module.

Definitely missing this in my life! Can you share the URL where you picked this up?

I would love this but I fear if I do get it it will end up on a shelf next to the reverse camera for my Explorer I still have not installed 2 years later.

since the 22s no longer come with this sensor is there a cheaper after market kit for the '22 models? I assume they might already have the wiring just not the actual sensor?

I would love to test out my sensor on a ‘22. Any one who owns a ‘22 in San Diego who wants me to try it??

I'm in SD waiting for a GTPE from the 1/10 build week. It is still on chip hold but I am very interested in seeing what it takes to install a foot sensor for the back. I can contact you when my car arrives.
