Backup camera re-vamp
 
2 Attachment(s)
Well the first backup camera I installed last week ended up being crap and quit working, so I bought a Boyo VTK-350 backup camera and installed it today and it works great,not the best but it does the job and works better than the junk one I bought from China. If anyone has the mygig radio with the lockpick then I would defiantly get a backup camera as well, it comes in handy if your around kids or pets and helps when you parallel park,a worthwhile mod in my opinion.:thumbsup:

Not hard at all, I ran the wires from the dash to under the door sill trim on the drivers side and up under the rear floor panel, then I popped the rear hatch sill plate and drilled a hole above the last snap in hole for the trim on the pass side and fished the wires up from a drain hole already there and connected the wires and mounted the camera. I can take a picture of where I ran the wires in the back if you want to see.

You must be lucky to get a good one then, I guess with anything that's manufactured your always going to get at least a few bad ones.:rolleyes:

With it being right next to the hitch it does make it easier, especially if you don't have someone around to help spot you.
