DIY: 2014 WK2 OEM Backup Camera Install (plenty of photos and Video)

This DIY will be long because I'm going to attach photos to help anyone out there, like myself, that hasn't removed many interior panels and would like to know exactly where they attach BEFORE trying to tear up their Jeep.

I'll start with the directions since I couldn't find a pdf anywhere on the internet.































I have more photos than what I'll post here, if you want to see them all I posted a Youtube video (part 2 and 3) where I go through all the photos and explain what I did. If for some reason you want more just ask and if enough people want even more than what I post I might edit the post and add them.

There's so many photos that I'm just going to post them back to back. I'll comment on some that need it, otherwise just look at the directions and my photos should follow them pretty well. As before, if you think anything needs explanation just chime in and I'll edit the post if necessary.













When pulling this large panel off be careful with the yellow connectors. I broke the part panel attachment point and had to JB weld it back on. The other type of connectors just pop out really easy if your trim tool is even close but the yellow ones seem like you either need to be right under it or if you're good see if you can slip it out of the panel's attachment point (it slides out, but I didn't notice until I'd already broke it)

The side toward the front also has two yellow connectors at the middle and lower end of the panel.


This is a connector that I haven't seen before. I actually went to the trouble of wedging it off the interior panel without pulling apart (male out of the female) because I had no idea how it attached. It was a real pain, so realize you're safe to pull it and THEN wedge it off the panel.








This is another weird connector that you have to wedge off the panel. On the top side you push off the lip that holds the band onto the panel (the band goes up and behind the male piece).




Tailgate panel removed:




Okay, this is the point where I'm going to limit the pictures because I think you're only supposed to post 26 pictures in a post So, here's just the highlights











I've read in other posts where people didn't have a good ground point and it lead to shaky images or blurs when driving over bumps in reverse. This ground screw is already being used so it's obvious, just back off the nut and add the camera ground wire.




This is what the glove compartment will look like once you've taken it all out:


This is the C5 wiring harness that you'll remove on the top left:


You attach the blue wire to the orange/blue wire that's already in the wiring harness in slot #45


No comment necessary on the "awesome" soldering job I did.

This is another wiring harness where you pull the "handle" away from the radio and it pushes itself out.


The bottom left is where I've put the three wires into the harness. Make sure these are seated completely in the harness by checking the other side and making sure they look like the other pins. I had to push really hard with a set of needle-nose pliers...to the point where I thought if I slipped it would bend/break the pin I was holding. It eventually went it. If you know someone with the Miller 6680 Depopulate tool for this I'd borrow it in a heartbeat. Every time I was supposed to use it I sat there and thought about how pissed I'd be if everything was good except one of the connections...and I wouldn't know it until I was at the dealer getting it flashed...with everything all put together


And that's it!
