    Is there a way to be able to turn the backup camera on and off without having to put the truck in reverse on the 09 sport model?


    Thanks!!

    You would be better off in time, money and save frustration to just install a after market camera.

    wat?

    yup....the dealer wants hundreds of dollars for the wiring, handle, camera, and mirror w/ screen. u'd come out cheaper buying a nice double din unit w/ a camera input
