    I leveled and put on the Jomax bracket and ran flawlessly for over a year. I recently put on a front camera and get intermittent sensor errors which obviously is due to the camera. I’ve not relocated the camera yet.

    I had to change my vote, since I leveled.

    still no issues whatsoever, happy to report.

    I still get error occasionally. Have had the first recall attempt performed and still get error when rains or snows after about 40 minutes of exposure.

    Per the owners manual you’ll get TSS errors during rain and snow, this is a known “feature”.

    Is there a way to permanently disable the PCS? (ie. dealer option)

    Thanks for the link to the PCS issue. Mine had the PCS problem from the start. I fixed it by wiping and polishing the front toyota emblem in the grill all the time. The PCS sensor is in the emblem. Polishing it and waxing it makes it slippery... so dirt and water doesn’t stick to it. It helped to stop the normal weather/dirt related PCS failures.
    The current problem is that the total sensor system is failing and throwing everything from headlight to PCS to Lane departure warning and beeps.

    Getting occasional error code now. 2" lift/level and swapped to an old Pro grill with the relocation kit.
    Happens once every couple of days or so, usually out of nowhere. Minor annoyance more than anything.

    Quick update... Haven't had any issues since September. I got bedliner and a camper shell and immediately started having issues again. Then I put on airbags on the rear to bring the rear back up and haven't had any issues since.

    Thinking about that more... Someone needs to make an adjustable TSS sensor mount.

    Rainx also will keep rain/snow from sticking.

    I’m about to order a TRD pro grille for my 18 SR5- wondering if there’s a bit difference in using the Toyota OEM TSS garnish versus a $30 knockoff?

    Seems like it’s just a piece of plastic covering the sensor and we all know the OEM stuff is way overpriced.

    Any experience here would be greatly appreciated!

    I don't have any direct experience, but lots of guys bought the aftermarket Pro grill and garish from mcauto and I haven't heard of issues with those. I'm not sure if the aftermarket garish is a direct fit on the Toyota grill though, that may be your only issue, but you could probably make it fit. I agree that there is nothing special about the material used for the cover.
