    I also just installed this yesterday, and I’m very happy with it! I like that I didn’t have to install a new switch. I was initially wondering if it was a mistake to go with this one, but after using it for a little, it’s very intuitive, and I think easier and quicker to use the steering wheel buttons than it would be to reach for another switch.

    Has anyone found any front cameras that are easily to mount on the trd pro grill? I don't wanna drill into it :'(

    The "raptor" lights have like a clip that goes over the grill. A camera inside that would be awesome but I think it might be too small.

    It doesn't say so I'm not sure. Maybe shooting them an email might help?

    This is how I have mine mounted at the moment. I just cut off the mounting tabs and folded the remaining piece and used double sided tape.

    I did almost the exact same thing :cheers:... used a couple of zip ties to mount it in the same place, but zip tied to the lower bar. Here are some pics (a little blurry because it's dark in the garage), including one of the display. I wanted to be able to see the top of my license plate for reference when parking. I'm not 100% happy with this, and would prefer something more stealth. That's why I used zip ties, so I can try it out and also consider other options (also need to get rid of that white logo on the top of the camera). Something like @zi0n mentioned would be ideal!

    Your POV I like..great reference point, your plate. I still would like to try another spot for a better view.

    Ever consider putting the cam in the second O? I don’t have a pro grill so not sure how it’d look. If it needs to be centered then obviously not but if you wanted more hidden that may be as good aspot as any

    Yup, the plate as reference point works well, but it also means the camera is pointing down more than I would like. Someone in another thread put his under the truck, which I may try, but I'm not sure if that'll give me the view I want when parking. I do like the slight difference in how you mounted yours - it's a little less visible than mine, so I'll give that a try too.

    I did think about it, but my OCD-type need to have it centered won :)

    It’s this one https://www.amazon.com/dp/B018800TR2/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_tai_mRswCbJJ9EKYR
    But I think this one that @c4inam2n used is exactly the same and costs a few $ less

    The camera has a couple of wires that you use to set the configuration. If you cut one of the wires it shows the guide lines. If you cut the other it switches the view to rear view. Some cameras work like this, and others have a button that you use to set the config.

    OP is not, but within this tread and a few others you do have some some options to choose from.

    I just ordered the car-solutions.com product. If I get enough time, I'll take pictures while I install it and post here.
