    I dunno seems about right

    Also not gonna lie it will make a front facing camera look more clean. I've been putting off install on mine for several reasons

    Mainly I am absolutely horrible with electrical

    I suck with electrons also.

    I did install a front camera when I got the Taco. As long as you have a plug-n-play kit, the worst part is fishing through the firewall.

    The camera that I have fits the badge on my cheese grater grille:
    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00P2EN5J2/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    There used to be two version. Non-wide angle that fits the center hole and looks a bit like Gonzo's beak and that one, which is wide angle. I should have grabbed that one, but mine is working very well.

    I have a Pro grille in the crawlspace that I got on trade. I haven't decided on a camera yet. For a mount, 5min with a knife and some black plastic would be my route. That's just me though.

    Finally got mine in, took like 2 weeks for them to ship the damn thing! It does fit the row above "TOYOTA" however if you invert it, it's too tall to fit on the first row. I ended up not using the Pro grill mounting bracket. Since I have TSS on my truck, the garnish is flat so I was able to make this camera flush in front of the garnish by drilling a hole and dremeling some plastic away so the nut can fit snug. I have a bracket for sale if anybody is looking for one. [​IMG]

    I don’t have TSS...but a large washer or flat piece of metal works just fine.

    In Florida they only require the rear license plate so I installed mine in the front bumper. Works great!
