front and rear bumper

I have purchased a rear and front motion sensor system for my 2014 JKUS. Can anyone tell me if they have done this before and where they drilled and placed their sensors (4 front and 4 back).

If you haven't done it before can you give me an idea what's behind the bumper. Obviously it would be redundant to drill a hole and run into metal behind the plastic cover. Is there spots that have no metal be hid the plastic bumpers

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Cheers
Al

The rear bumper is only about 7lbs of plastic... It's not a bumper at all, no metal at all! I think it's only a cosmetic frame cover... The front, I'm not sure about as I have not removed it yet. Due to my barricade hd front bumper still being on back order...

The front bumper has some thin spots as it does have a metal backing inside. This plastic bumper is attached to this piece, which then bolts to the frame. A quick Google Images search of "wrangler jk front bumper removal" will have several results showing this piece.

The rear bumper is entirely plastic with a couple metal threaded inserts to hold it on.

I've since discarded mine so I cannot get an accurate measurement. I've seen a few do prox sensors in the rear bumper but never the front.

No the front is nothing like the rear. Front has a plastic cover over thin metal.

Th rear is all plastic excepting some hanger hardware.
