Hey, saw the post, just never remember to grab the vin.

So if that laredo E VIN has the wiring, then is simply plug in camera to a harness that is unused in the rear hatch and have BCM flashed?

Re: ATTENTION: Please respond if you removed load leveling rear shocks for standard!

Is it possible the load leveling has an intergrated mount that is part of the strut. And all other struts have this other mount? that would explain why there is only one part number for mounts.
