Default Is it feasible to add the front parksense?

We have a '13 Big Horn with the 8.4AN, and EVIC, would it be feasible to add the front parksense system from the '14 to our '13?
We never bumped into anything, however, we have the opposite problem, not pulling up enough.

Good question, you have me thinking the same thing. I just wonder if our 13's have the right harnesses in place to take the front parksense though. Might be stupid pricey.

Could someone please link to one of those kits? All of my search attempts, result in bringing me to the OEM system added by factory.

I wonder if the wire harness is there on the 13's. It was in early 2013 mentioned that they were supossed to get this along with other safety features, so wondering if the wire harness is just sitting under there somewhere and a computer re flash

So, when considering adding front sensors .. do they have to be installed in the bumpers ? any way around not having to drill 4 holes in the bumbers ? how about a small - thin profile under the bumper attachment that supports the sensors ? I really dont want to start drilling out the holes if it can be avoided .. thoughts .. considerations ?

Thanks for the links on amazon. Surprised to see systems for so cheap. Just wonder how reliable they are.

Man if I could add those in and get the EVIC to show it even I'd probably pay stupid amounts of cash for it!
