Installing my rear RCI bumper in the upcoming days and had a few questions. I know I will lose the radar BSM. I assume it’s just disconnected and you zip tie up the harness. I also am wondering how to transfer over the back up sensors. Unable to find any info on removal of the sensors from stock to the new bumper. Probably overthinking all of this just researching prior to diving in.

Thanks for the help!

Your not overthinking it. The clips are kind of difficult to get at, especially the outermost ones. I still haven't finished mine for this exact reason. Sadly I don't actually have the answers you need as I need them myself.

Were you ever able to transfer them over? I'm installing mine now.

Yes I was. Getting them out of the plastic bumper is the hardest. I just turned them a half to a quarter turn and angled them out. Then installing them was way easier. Just angle them in and they snap in. One of mine was a hair loose fitting and used a dab of black silicon to secure it better. I need the same for the license plate lights.
