And while we surely have a front differential on our Jeep Grand Cherokees the layout is very different than on a Wrangler. In fact, for any off-road JGC, skid plates cover most of the transmission. The OP needs it for parking purposes.

Mud Buster - I don't think there's many folks here with a front view camera. The majority of RAX users like their in-car video video streaming while driving, not so much adding a front camera. You should also draw inspiration from the likes of Lexus, Range Rover, BMW, AUDI etc. They all position it more or around logos in the front grille though.

Re: Need advice on where to put the front camera on Jeep Grand Cherokee

I mounted my front camera in the grill, centered at the top. It's angled to let me see the front bumper and what is directly in front of it. It allows me to use it for parking as well as to see what is directly in front of the vehicle when off-road.
