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

Hello just purchased a Jeep Grand Cherokee and wanting to install the rax jail breaker software and camera. I need some advice on where to install the camera? Should I put it in the grill? Or where . I know some people on this forum installed the front cam so if you can post pictures that would be great.

Thank you

Here is a thread: Rax Jailbreak installed with extra cameras

A Google search pulled up several youtube videos.

I haven't been to the company website, but you might be able to download an instruction manual.

The factory mounts them in the lower grill/air intake. You could maybe purchase the OEM lower grill for the camera and make that work and look nice and tidy.

This may take you to a picture if I did it right: http://www.wk2jeeps.com/2014/2014_wk2_srt_045.jpg

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

I think it depends on why you want the camera. If it is just for parking, in the grill would be fine. If you want it for wheeling, I think the front differential would be excellent (be able to see both wheels and approach angles).
