Tow Hook License Plate Mount

Does this mount clear all the sensors on the front bumper?

with the tow hook mount, the plate will block the parking sensor (if optioned). They offer stickers that apply to the back of the plate to "trick" the sensor, but they don't work consistently.

highly recommend looking at the SlyBrackets BOZZmount instead. with proper placement, parking and radar sensors are unimpeded.

there's plenty space for airflow around and behind it (don't mind the downward angle... i'm waiting for the LEVELER component, which i also recommend to buy at the same time if u decide to get the BOZZmount, and your grille is angled.)
