I thought 'fenders' were US for Bumper Bars Peter?

Fenders keep the mud from being thrown by the turning wheels. Bumpers,five mile per hour crash bumpers they used to be called, are front and back and more often than not now days with sensors that pick up anything in front or back of the vehicle and set off beeps in the cabin getting closer together until a solid tone tells you to either stop or run into something. Then now days, I think, it has become required beginning in 2019 for backup cameras too.

I got used to the back-up camera in my Explorer and really like it. The Ranger is
too old to have one, so I hooked up a rear camera to my GPS.... works great.
Although the GPS doesn't beep to tell me it's too late..... :shock:

The backup camera is really good for hitching up the boat. It shows you where the hitch is and directs you directly to it. Great help.

Yes, reversing camera on the Ford is great for coupling a trailer and reversing but the Kia is much better
