Does any one have a Metal Tech 4x4 bumper on there GX with Dynamic Cruise? I’m really worried about the grill guard being in front of the radar unit. Metal Tech assures me it won’t affect it but I have never seen one of their Bumpers on a unit with a radar equipped grill. Please let me know if you have a 2010-2013 GX with both. Thanks

Don't you have a 2013 GX? If so and you have dynamic cruise... How??
I'd really like to add that to my rig!
Also, doesn't the dynamic cruise run off the top of the windshield?

Those rare packages were available on even the earlier 10-13 models.... and simply called Driver Support Package '14-'19. You could get variations of options on 10-13 models.

The grill emblem is the radar/pre-collision sensor

OP: If your sensor is being blocked by the bumper in anyway you will likely get error messages and system will deactivate. The radar/PCS sensor cannot be obstructed without a malfunction state. Which MT bumper are you looking at? IMO: That one with the bar that rises up toward the grille is sure to cause an error.

I’ll post a pic. Someone ordered this 13 premium with this feature and the lane departure. They deleted the ML sound and video equipment.

Interested to hear what they removed on the ML side.

Did they replace the ML amplifier and subwoofer in rear cargo area with something else?

Are we wired for plug-n-play dynamic cruise control?

10-13 is prewired but haven't seen anyone do it with a used radar sensor yet so very spendy mod with many new parts required.

An '11 owner on CL did it to his base

A very involved retrofit that you will even need to replace seat belt pre-tensioners for the PCS.

Here is a picture of my front grill and the steering wheel.
This type of cruise has its pros and cons of course.

The MetalTech Talon bumper will most certainly interfere with that. Just look at the position of that bar in relation to the L badge.

Considering all '20+ have this sensor now MT will need to further accommodate the need for compatible bumper versions for this tech. As hard as it can be to retrofit...often harder to defeat without lots of errors.

offroad47: You do have a fully load "US version" 460 but it still doesn't have MTS. If you decide to install MTS can I ask a favor?

If you can oblige... I just need some pictures... the camera system you have utilizes an ECU in the ultra right area of the dash call the Park Assist ECU. I have FSM but it seems it displaces an existing ECU and not real life physical pictures of ECU. Location below the right passenger vent. I picked up a "cheap used" of this "expensive" ECU.

Cheapest MTS for 10-13 is directly from Japan which can typically be cheap but COVID makes this one come by boat.


With shipping it will be around ~$150 give or take a few dollars.

10-13 uses - 859A1-60020

Ever grateful!

Yes I plan on putting the MTS system on my car. I was very surprised it was not on it already. I will get you my phone number when I do it so I can get you the pics you need. This GX is a odd bird I guess. I’m going to have to figure out where what they put in place of the ML system in the rear. Do you have a pic of what I am looking for ? Thanks.

MTS was available on fully loaded Canadian models but left out of the 50 state US market vehicles (except for '20+ Luxury w/off-road package)

This video here shows the panel that would need to be removed to access location of the stock Mark Levinson Amplifier and subwoofer


Here is a picture of unit with trim off
