Get the one without the lines. I mounted mine with this mount:

Just run the wires (don't be afraid to pop some panels and such. Took me like less than a half an hour and the wires are completely hidden (very clean and easy to do). The camera is almost the exact right fit for it. Just take out that little bracket that comes with it, and get some putty to put it in place. You will need someone to center it while you have it in reverse. Once they do, putty it, let it dry, and you are good to go!

Re: Backup Camera Newbie Question

The lines aren't accurate/useless when it's pointed that high. Like, you are going to be looking down from the wheel. Basically the lines will be in mid air haha.

That's not to take anything away from the position of the camera. It's perfectly fine to see everything behind you, even close up. But the lines are only useful if it were mounted in the middle of the rear bumper or something

Re: Backup Camera Newbie Question

I just installed a Brandmotion 9002-8838 in my Wrangler. It's amazing!

It works out perfectly, because the bottom of the screen is right at my bumper. Prefect viewing angle.

That said, if you go with a tire mount you should make sure you get a camera that doesn't have the lines built in. If you have a radio with customizable lines, that's much more useful.

It does angle down a bit. Not sure if it would show the trailer bar. I have a hitch, but I haven't hooked anything up to it to test it..

Re: Backup Camera Newbie Question

Does anyone have any experience with the AEV "read vision system"? It comes with a flash tool to turn the option on in the radio so you don't have to go to the dealer, but the price tag is a little crazy!
