Jeep Cherokee Collision Warning Sensor

Looked at a 2016 Trailhawk this weekend to replace our aging Grand Cherokee. Does anyone know if the location of the forward collision warning (FCW) sensor on the front fascia in any way impedes the installation of the base plates??? I'm thinking the base plates go where the tow hooks are but can't be for sure and the sensor has been moved further to the tow hooks on the '16 models. I'm leaning towards the Ready Brute Elite integrated towbar/braking system with Blue Ox base plates. Thanks!

If the FCW is also part of the Adaptive Cruise system, then Blue Ox says their baseplate works with it. See http://blueox.com/wp-content/uploads...11/BX11365.pdf

Call Blue Ox to confirm.
