Backup camera install on 2014 RA3
 
So I've been looking into adding the OEM backup camera to my 14' Altitude.
Can anyone give me a definite answer if I need the full wiring harness like the 11-13s pictured here.
Jeep Grand Cherokee WK2 - Rear back-up camera

..or can I pick up a new rear brow with a backup camera and just plug and play?

Please only respond if you know the answer.

TIA

It for sure isn't plug-n-play. At minimum, dealer would have to activate that feature. I'd bet money that the wiring harness isn't there either. In a nutshell, it isn't going to be cheap, nor easy.

Well the kit for the 11-13 is 192.66 through allmoparparts.com so if the kit for the 2014 is the same I think that's fairly cheap.

Install time approx 2 hours just because I need make sure it's perfect.

XAC Park View Rear Camera activation through dealer $~60.

In a pistachio shell, it's going to be cheap and easy as soon as the kit is released.

Someone was successful installing the camera. He had a custom harness built by ramharness.com.... You will basically need to run 3 wires from the radio to the camera for the video signal, and then find somewhere the power leads, and if you want to have the guide lines, one wire goes to the BCM. It can be done. He also had the dealer flash to enable the camera after all the wiring was done.

I was at the dealer last week and requested a quote on adding the back up camera to my 2014 Altitude, here is the info I received:

That's a fairly good price, but if you are handy you could DIY.

I wonder what they mean by "replacement tailgate handle assembly."
So will this Camera be mounted in the brow or will it be in the handle of the tailgate? No pics online yet.

Maybe that's what Jeep calls the bottom plastic trim/bezel where the camera and the LP lights are.
