    Hey Guys,
    I know I ask 1,000 questions but this forum has been priceless to me for working on my taco.

    I am installing the PopnLock 5400 soon and am trying to figure out what camera fits in the handle (same as the stock handle). I have a Pioneer HU it will wire right into. Trying not to pay OEM prices. I searched here and saw the ebay guy people use. Just wondering if that is the only option to fit in the handle or if someone has other advice??

    Thanks!

    Any suggestions on an aftermarket camera? Right now leaning toward this one...

    I'm not sure if it will fit in the handle so worst case I will mount it on the bumper. Tryin to keep the camera cost under $50 if anyone has a comparable or better idea...

    My last effort. No one reading has put an aftermarket camera in the tailgate handle? I'll just go with my gut under the budget....

    I found out the hard way that not all cameras and harnesses are compatible with each other, I had to replace the harness also when I changed out my cameras. Little bit of a pain but doable.

    That camera can't fit in the handle.
    Try something like this instead;
