My Backup Camera Install

Heres my install that took me all of 10 mins to do, and then another 30 mins getting ready to smash my scanguage because it was a bag of hell trying to get it to adjust right. Heres some pics, and it was raining but I dialed her in anyways!
Got the camera and mirror from "rodrigogudino" and I will say its 100% mint condition and the guy is a pure champ to deal with. Thanks for the gear!
Truck was already wired for it so it was a joke, but heres it is:
PERFECT PACKAGING, KEPT IT MINT

THE BEAST ITSELF

TOP VIEW

CAMERA WITH PROTECTED LENS

BACK TAKEN OFF AND STOCK PLASTIC COVER

MORE MESSY RAIN

CAMERA INSTALLED AND WIRE PLUGGED IN

OLD MIRROR. YOU CAN SEE THE METAL CLIPS YOU NEED TO UNDO. A BIT HARD THE FIRST TIME BUT EASY ONCE YOU GET IT

PRE-WIRED CAMERA PLUG JUST PULLED DOWN AND PLUGGED IN

HAD TO TAKE THE PLASTIC COVER OFF TO FIT THE SCANGUAGE. NO BIGGIE THOUGH

FINISHED LOOK

READY TO ROCK

same. I wanted a TRD top of the line when I was looking, but I figured I could get the 2.7 access 5 speed for $8 000 - 10 000 cheaper then it. So I got it and am just doing the mods I wanted to it. Camera was #1 on the list.

Very helpful hitching up the trailer and when parallel parking I can stop before I hear the smashing sound .

Nice Jerb OP

09+ are wired. Price is whatever you negotiate. Me myself paid his asking price because I usually do, and I just wanted it asap.

buy an indash stereo with a screen, and there's a camera on amazon for about $35. And to help with the installation, there's a good right-up on here too!
