    Everything, is this still a Tacoma?
    I'm a dealer for CRUX. I can get these at a lower price than any online advertised. I personally have two on the way, one for me, one for another forum member. PM me if interested!

    I have access as a dealer but since I focus on remote starters and automation & control via smart phone, I don’t have it listed on my website, it’s a part of the secret menu of all things tech and electronics I have access to as a authorized dealer for tech products...if enough interest I may list it on our website but it would be a non stock item, special order only so lead time would be about a week if in stock at the warehouse. $399

    Is this the Crux system I saw that has the multiple cameras that give all the different views? I think it does a birds eye view also?

    I don’t have the anytime kit, but I think it’s the same sized camera. Install requires a dremel to make an opening big enough on chicken wire to fit the camera. Only additional supplies are a bit of aluminum sheet and epoxy.

    So I just installed the anytime back-up camera and have it wired up. Only issue is the LED light for the switch is on all the time regardless of whether the headlights(dash lights) are on. How do I wire it so the blueish LED only comes on with the lights?

    I'm guess something is switched up?

    For that you need to tap the dash light power circuit to power the led. The switch "on" led gets powered by the switch. Both leds use the same ground. If you want them to dim with the dash lights then use dimmer ground instead of chassis ground.

    so I emailed the folks at anytime camera with the same question and said "That is just how the switch works currently. There may be a future version that allows you to control the back light, this is what the grey/blue wires will be for."

    I asked if its possible to use the grey/blue wires and they said no.

    Has anyone actually been successful wiring the switch power to dash lights bc the company doesn't seem to think it's possible

    Sorry, was assuming one of the generic taco switches. I’d have to see one of their switches and open it up to see how to do it. It sounds like the led gets power from the same wire as the switch, this is what makes it different and unable to work with dash lights. If the wires are already there it might be possible to alter the printed circuit board to route led power through the blue/grey wires instead.

    The video doesn't show a birds eye view. I found a couple on Amazon that looks like they work but they don't come with the side mirror Caps ready made for the Toyota. I'm super interested in this project Having just hit a concrete post In the garage doing $2500 damage:(

    Which camera are you using that has the mounting stud to the rear rather than vertical? I'd also like to see a pic of the back side of the grill to see your mounting method.

    Just installed my kit today and everything works great. I'm really impressed with how good the video quality is on the front camera. Highly recommend.

    using this camera: https://www.amazon.com/NATIKA-Backu...ronics&sprefix=natika+,electronics,152&sr=1-3

    the camera has 3 wires that you can leave or snip. one flips the image for front vs. backup cam, one keeps/removes the grid line, one flips the mounting from vertical vs. horizontal.


    this was my first attempt (ended up buying another grill and starting over), but it will give you an idea of what i did. the grill i used has a bit more of the "chicken wire" dremeled out in the front, so the plate sits a little more forward and is a bit more imbedded in the grill.

    if i could do it again, i'd make the plate a little bigger and mount it a bit higher up. i was a little concerned about having to take too much material out of the grill, but i don't think it would have mattered considering the amount of epoxy i used to fill in the back of the grill.

    Yotaleds.com has some brackets for this grill & the Pro grill to mount LED's that are similar to this. Think I'm gonna contact them to see if I can get just the brackets only to mount a camera. Here's a pic from their site

    my first mock up was a similar mount on the face of the grill, but i didn't like how much the camera stuck out.

    Yea it's hard to get the position of the camera the way you want it without heavily modifying things. I might use one of the Yotaleds plates with one of these cameras that have the mounting wings. The camera unscrews & just drill out the plate to size & attach. Seems like a plan anyways :notsure:

    So I was using the camera that comes with the kit but it only lasted 2 weeks before there was condensation build up https://imgur.com/a/v5O2DwX

    Anytimebackupcamera refunded me $19 for the camera. So I'm in the market for and aftermarket camera. On that note I'm also curious where folks have mounted there's with the CBI bumper with front bar? This is my trucks https://imgur.com/a/XoTWEFW and with the camera that comes with it I have it mounted just below the Toyota on the pro grill but bc of the camera angle and the front bar on the bumper I am missing about 20% of the top of the screen which looks outward. I would like to have a camera that looks more out as opposed to down if possible.

    Check Amazon, there are plenty to choose from with different mounts, some of which are adjustable.

    Edit, I have the same one MrBrooks has pictured above. Using the wing bracket you can bend it up or down.
