    I have an aftermarket Kenwood 7" indash screen with the backup camera, seeing how i would never use a backup camera i would not miss it. I was thinking one day while out wheeling, that a camera up front would be somewhat use full when peaking an unknown steep climb. As for the hookup i would use the 4WD signal wire to automatically turn the screen to that input, and i would use a 10-24 volt fully encased billet fish eye camera mounted to my tube bumper.

    Let me hear what you all think, and what ever suggestions you have. If you can think of a specific camera let me know that also, for i have not purchase one yet...

    I looked in the A/V section for a while and has not seen anyone mention this so here it is.

    Not exactly the same, but close. My brother has on on the front of his 370Z Nismo, so as not to scuff the front spoiler on curbs and such.

    if youve got the same kenwood i bought, you can have multiple cameras hooked up to it! and just use the kenwood camera, good camera, its weatherproof, the billet alum. casing isnt necessary... you can mount the camera in the grill, in the bumper, where ever, its not gonna get hurt. and dont need a fisheye, they are already set up to see like 180 deg. i think, huge viewing angle, great! its what im going to do actually... but been thinking of other mods id like to spend money on, actually thinking of selling my kenwood, as im not as big a fan of touch screens as i thought id be, lol... paid damn 1200 bucks for the HU though... sad face...

    Yea, trying to come up with a camera that i can mount or recess into my skid plat and angle it down a bit, dont want an eye sore up there, let alone it get knocked off at some car wash or something like that.
