I have a 9500ci sitting in front of me and I'm trying to plan how/where everything is going to be installed. I'm big on stealth installs and I was wondering if anyone has mounted the radar head behind the rubber bumper cover. According to the Ford service manual this should not be a issue (see below, #1) mounting wise. The front bumper cover/grill assembly will be coming off anyway to mount the the 4 LIDAR heads, so it's really not much more work. Since the radar is acting on radio waves I don't see any reason why this wouldn't work, but I'm wondering if it would MUTE the signal in any way? The rubber bumper cover shouldn't mute the signal, but the paint on the bumper cover will contain several different colors of metal flake, and that is my main concern.
