Angry Backup Camera not available on Lerado! Help!

So I purchased a brand new 2014 GC Lerado earlier this year with a reverse camera installed. The dealership side the camera didn't work but their will be an update to the Uconnect unit to make it available in a couple months. 4 months later and a lot of hassle, Chrysler confirmed that the Lerado model doesn't support the reverse camera. Something about not having a wiring kit to support the power for the camera. Does anyone know if there is an after market kit I can purchase in order to hook up the reverse camera?

Some dealer sold you a Laredo with a backup camera installed?
Is that on your invoice as a backup camera?

That seems like fraud...

Re: Backup Camera not available on the Laredo! Help!

I'm not sure if it was on the invoice but I know the sales rep handed me info on the Uconnect and highlight the additional features section that stated it supported a park view camera...it took the dealership over 3 months to figure out that it wasn't compatible with the Laredo model. Unreal!
