I noticed that the part number had changed, but some quick "googling" showed that they had just changed the part over the years and it was still compatible. Once I plugged it in I found that not only did I gain the colored backup lines (something that the original did not have) but the picture was much crisper and at night was actually quite good vs the abysmal night performance before. I think it cost me around $80 and took 20 minutes to swap out on the pickup. Before you start splicing in an aftermarket one it might be worth a shot.
Wait will this work?? I'm interested!
