Yes, I have ACC. When I first installed the bumper, I left the module off and just thought I would use normal cruise control until I installed the relocation bracket. However, I learned that even the normal cruise doesn't work either unless the ACC module is plugged in.

I then plugged it in and zip tied it out of the way to the frame rail until I could install the relocation bracket behind the grille. Even though I had the collision detection system off and the cruise set to normal in the settings, I'd still get an occasional message on the dash saying that the collision detection device was blocked.

I then removed the front light bar in the middle of the bumper and zip tied the ACC bracket there to test out and see if it would work in that location. It does. Been there for a couple weeks now while I've been testing to make sure it works. Done a couple of 300 mile trips and lots of daily driving with it there and its working great. So now the plan is to make a permanent bracket to keep it there and then cut some of the stock lower grille out of the factory bumper to fit that location on the fab fours bumper and make some brackets to hold it there as well so that it gives a factory looking finishing touch to the opening.

I measured, and there is still room to put a couple 6" long mini cube lights on each side of the ACC module behind where the lower grille will be, so I can still put lights there too if I want in the future.

how much cutting are you guys doing to fit these. I saw on the rogue install video they have to remove the crash bars. I have been told that voids the warranty?? But i find that hard to believe.

Those look badass but i wouldn't even consider cutting my truck. Is that just due to the slim profile of the bumper? There's no other way?

We are doing our first install tomorrow, & will have an install guide with pics shortly after. The front bumper will be for sale starting on Thursday!

Yes, cutting the frame gives you a much better approach angle. Its not for everyone, but there are many raptor owners who are up for it. Here is our Race Series bumper, it is the tightest fitting, best approach angle you can get without cutting the frame. It does require our intercooler kit. As you can see, the frame is what is stopping us from tucking this bumper up even tighter. Removing the tow hooks will also help the approach angle.

Default Stock bumper with LED Light Bar
Decided not to mess with my bumper since it has the adaptive cruise control sensor in it and didn't want to move it just to put led light bar on it. I also didn't want to drill into the bumper either. So I put an N-Fab LED light bar bracket on it and it looks great! Only had to cut two slots in the lower bumper plastic cover and that was it.

Went with the ADD Stealth R and am really happy with it. Was concerned with the ACC relocate too but it was a non-issue. ACC works perfectly in the new location and you can't really make it out unless you're looking for it.

Looks awesome. I went with nfab. Now I need to find a rear bumper that cuts some length. I can barely fit in the garage right now
