Rear Valance/Diffuser w/ backup assist sensors

I have been looking for a rear Valance/Diffuser to fit my 2012 V6 that has is compatible with my backup sensors. I didn't see anything and as far as I can tell the only thing you can do is drill new holes in the part. Is there any put there that has these holes already? I'd just be afraid of messing up the part and being stuck with a useless piece.

None that I have found. My 2012 GT also has backup sensors. I'm not sure if the rear valance is the same on the GT and the V6, but you might be able to find an OEM part # if you use something like a GT diffuser.

You're gonna have to drill into any aftermarket valence as it is easier for companies to offer the one product and leave the drilling to the customer. It's very simple though. A few measurements to make sure your marks are all even, then drill the four holes.

That's a good idea! The GT splitter looks pretty good and would be a lot easier.

That's true, it shouldn't be too hard, and there's some real nice diffusers out there just looking for some new holes.

Yeah, I'm looking at getting the GT500/Boss/GTCS rear valance for mine and drilling the sensor holes.

Finally found something, not too bad looking but pretty expensive in comparison even BEFORE paint.

Not nearly as pricey as the RTR rear diffuser haha. Looks good though.

I recently had some body repairs on my 2011 V6. The insurance company let me swap out the valence with the CS/GT500/Boss version and the body shop simply drilled the holes. Not a big deal.

No display, just beeping that gets quicker as you get closer to something. It's a factory option.

Ah gotcha. I kind of like the ones with display. It appears that Ford has used at least two manufacturers in the last few years. Thinking I'll just spring for a highly rated aftermarket set. With or without display they're still far cheaper than the OEM sets I've found.

I have the backup camera in the spoiler and stock nav display that does the camera. Backups sensors and sounder kits are pretty easy to find http://www.americanmuscle.com/rear-b...ng-sensor.html although really a camera alone I feel is a lot more useful and less obtrusive in terms of looks.
