  • Roo bars and radars

    I’ve be wondering what effect fitting a roo bar to the Fortuner has on the radar system. And particularly when you then add in 2 large spots or a LED bar. Would these lights occlude the radar or diminish it’s range or spread?

    ive looked into this a bit - officially Toyota will say not to place anything in front of the badge , which will definitly affect the millimetre wave unit. Which is fair enough really it has to work in conjunction with the camera to detect any objects in your path. I have found that fitting 7" spots wont cause any issues and the system will still pick up trucks in adjacent lanes while they are a few car lengths ahead.
