Re: DIY 2014 Grand Cherokee Front View Camera

Thanks for reviving the thread. I'm still trying to figure out how to get through the firewall. I need the front camera for offroad as I'm short lol.

The firewall was an issue. There is an existing hole that is rather full down low under the fresh air inlet (a 180 degree looping plastic piece). I figured there was no way I would get four cables through the firewall hole and cutting the grommet was going to be difficult (very hard to reach). So, I did something rather goofy, but much easier. I went through the air intake. One hole in the plastic on the inside near the firewall. The cables run above the filter on the side. I am not recommending it, but it was much easier than other methods.

Very cool mtnmerlin, do you have a build thread? Will have to pick your brain some more when I get to a pc.

Ok, sorry about that, but your jeep listed under your name made me think otherwise.
I cannot edit my response but I will ask a moderator.

Re: DIY 2014 Grand Cherokee Front View Camera

I am glad it worked out for your. I don't know where other people found that spare, unused grommet, but I was "there" and I did not see/have it.

Sweet setup!! I want something similar, but usable with the front fascia on or off. I know I won't get a view as awesome as yours is, but I'll have to see what I come up with. I was toying with the idea of a magnetic mount for the cameras that I can move (with sufficient cable slack) to the outside of the fenders when offroading and then back somewhere else during normal driving.

Re: DIY 2014 Grand Cherokee Front View Camera

I have the CHR558 lockpick and after bad luck with cheap forward looking camera's, went with this little guy

https://camera-source.com/products/u...ide-camera-kit

It's small and very waterproof. I installed mine low for best parking assistance. As far as trying to get through the firewall, I found a much easier route. If you open the passenger door, there is a body plug in the front lower door frame. take off the interior kick panel and run a coat hanger through the foam insulation. Make a small hole in the body plug, and there you go. I cleaned it up with flexible wire conduit that I zipped tied in place on the inside of the body plug, so it wouldn't pull out. From there, you can run the wires (in the conduit) through the door jam into the engine compartment. I had to remove some of the screws attaching the fender liner. This doesn't interfere with the door at all.
