Bull Bar for front with parking sensors

Good afternoon everyone.
I just signed up for the forum.
I use other forums online for my motorcycle and my Dodge truck.
I look forward to gathering information and learning on this one.

I recently purchased a beautiful 2017 Explorer Sport in the magnetic grey.

It is so nice looking!
Those wheels!!!!
That color paint!!!
All that power from the Ecoboost!!!
I dig it so much!
And.... My wife drives it.
Not me. I bought it for her.
I get to see it when I leave for work in the mornings. LOL

But.
She saw a photo on the internet of an Explorer with nerf bars on the sides and a bull bar on the front.
Looked very nice.
I currently have a bull bar on my Dodge truck and I love it.

She is wanting those two items for the Explorer.
I have a set of nerf bars coming.
Those will be on the vehicle within a week.
But I am concerned about the idea of a bull bar.

Will the bull bar mess up the parking sensors on the front of the vehicle?
It actually mounts low enough to clear the front facing camera.

But the sensors that beep when you creep forward in a parking spot are nice and I don't want to have to disable them.

What say you?

Thanks.

Looks like I have found my answer.
Another member has posted an issue with his bull bar messing up his collision alert system.
My Explorer is equipped with that system too.

Urgh.
