    Heres my install that took me all of 10 mins to do, and then another 30 mins getting ready to smash my scanguage because it was a bag of hell trying to get it to adjust right. Heres some pics, and it was raining but I dialed her in anyways!
    Got the camera and mirror from "rodrigogudino" and I will say its 100% mint condition and the guy is a pure champ to deal with. Thanks for the gear!
    Truck was already wired for it so it was a joke, but heres it is:
    PERFECT PACKAGING, KEPT IT MINT

    I never knew how great it was to have a back up camera untill i got this truck.

    same. I wanted a TRD top of the line when I was looking, but I figured I could get the 2.7 access 5 speed for $8 000 - 10 000 cheaper then it. So I got it and am just doing the mods I wanted to it. Camera was #1 on the list.

    How would one know if there truck is prewired for this? I have a 07 4 door sport TRD SR5 with the tow package. I would love to have a back up camera.

    09+ are wired. Price is whatever you negotiate. Me myself paid his asking price because I usually do, and I just wanted it asap.

    buy an indash stereo with a screen, and there's a camera on amazon for about $35. And to help with the installation, there's a good right-up on here too!
