Reverse Camera and Lowering passanger side mirror

Im looking for just a reverse camera for my jeep... anyone know where i could get a fairly decent one for a good price? and was wondering if it exists or can be done, on my brothers car when he reverses the side passanger mirror inclines downward so you can see the curb/ sidewalk. can that be done on a jeep mirror?

Re: Reverse Camera and Lowering passanger side mirror

Reverse cameras can be found in a lot of places. Depending on your wiring expertise, they aren't too hard to install.

I'm assuming you'd need a lockpick as well, not sure there tho, I haven't done one.

The mirror can be programmed to tilt downward in reverse. You can talk to your dealer about that.

Re: Reverse Camera and Lowering passanger side mirror

my wiring expertise is garbage, what i was thinking was getting a cam and then getting it installed properly, i looked online but i find the camera's look cheap and bad, would you happen to know where i could find a decent one. and as for the mirror really? the 09 laredo has that side mirror option?

Re: Reverse Camera and Lowering passanger side mirror

I assumed all '08+ jeeps had that option. I could be wrong.... usually am.....

I don't know anything about aftermarket cameras, I'd wait for someone who does.

Re: Reverse Camera and Lowering passanger side mirror

If the area is dimly light you can see pretty good but if its pitch black you cant see too much. My reverse light also are not that bright so that could be why.
