Fab Fours rear bumper

So the truck I've had for 2 months I got rear ended on the way home from work the other day it goes in the body shop Monday, since you can't order the fab four rear bumper with sensors pre drilled has anyone installed them after?

Local shop tried reusing a customer's backup sensors in their Fab Fours bumper and they didn't work like the OEM sensors. Apparently, the sensors are very finicky and have to be placed at the exact angle and spacing as the OEM bumper in order to work properly. The shop usually just tie wraps the sensors up and out of the way. This is what they told me when I inquired about reusing the OEM sensors on an aftermarket bumper. They don't have a reason to say otherwise as they have an hourly shop rate and bill accordingly...

Have you considered other brand bumpers with the holes pre drilled for the sensors?
