    How difficult was it to move those switches?

    Not difficult. Just time consuming on having to remove most of the front plastic. Also helps to have the right tools to cut the center middle part out. I used to be a stereo and alarm installer so had some previous experience doing custom stuff. Meso has a thread talking about these switches and I also had posts there. I'm actually now running a switch above my head for the front/rear camera.
    Another note on the meso switch panels, I did have to cut and move wiring of the left window switch and move it to the center of the truck.

    I cannot get the website to load so that I can purchase this setup? Is there a new site other than the one with the hyperlinks on the first page?

    i ordered the germes and a couple cameras....got one that is made to go in the logo...used on tundras....thought it would fit in my grill around the tss bling belt buckle and it did not appear to work too well...so ordered that damn natika.

    i see the difference with the natika cam - it appears you can use a bunch of nuts or different nuts...because the cable is smaller than most that come with the rca connectors already installed. when the nut is on the screw and i cannot get my nut off...because of the large rca connectors ...i cannot get the camera firmed up where i need it....

    I went to the website but it doesnt have anyway to order it or a cost. I would be interested in looking into this, especially since I already have the front camera and wanted to install some side cameras in the mirrors.

    I'm not really sure. I did some Google research but couldn't find the whole kit but the bits & pieces looked reasonable

    Yea the mirror cameras might be kinda useful but the blinkers gotta be on to activate them. They do have a phone # listed at the bottom of their page

    Still need to do this, and I'll likely be relocating my rear camera due to swing out once its done and installed.

    Good idea on the dishwashing liquid. I had a hard time getting the wiring through the grommet. I used the long, probably 12", #2 craftsman screwdriver to punch the hole and then used a straightened wire coathanger with the sharp end twisted 180 degrees and wrapped the wires to the coathanger with electrical tape. It was more difficult than it should have been. I'm sure the dishwashing liquid would've made it push through much easier. Also, I had ty-wrapped the wiring together about every 6" beforehand and considered removing the ty-wraps before I pulled the wires through the grommet but didn't and they pulled through just fine. I routed the wiring over the steering wheel column before pulling them through to the radio and, since there was plenty of extra wire left over, I wrapped them into about a 6" loop and ty-wrapped the loop. After seeing others do this job, I thought there would be more room left and the radio would have sat in the recess more easily. It took the mounting screws to make it go all the way in. The next time I go back in, I'm gonna try to move the wiring around some. Maybe attach some of the wiring to sticky backs and attach them above the radio. We'll see once I go back in.

    Got mine installed today! As others have stated, getting the wire through the firewall was a real bitch. Tight working area and you just need to be pretty aggressive with it. Also stole some inspiration from a fellow member as my OCD made me take a dremmel to the TRD pro grill to occomidate the front camera in the center. Couldn’t live with installing it off-center lol. Since the grille was only $75, this gave me more confidence. Also could have just bought a flush radar sensor cover, but that’s less fun.
