    How did you cover the hole left behind by the camera next to the latch handle? I've been searching for a blank or something for that spot, but coming up empty.

    Thanks!

    There's a plastic insert piece, look on Ebay for a used handle and it may come with one.

    Found a used latch on eBay that didn't have a camera for $10. Swapped it out, now no hole.

    Trail damage and enough fur to make many more dogs.
    I left it open on mine. Cant see the hole behind the swing out.

    Buy an early Taco tailgate handle, or base model that didn’t get a camera, if you want OEM.

    The spare tire on my swing out aftermarket bumper blocks the camera. You don't need to relocate otherwise.

    Gotcha. Wasn’t sure if people were relocating it up higher (like on a cap/topper) for better visibility or something like that.

    No swingout here, so I’m clear for now... not that I have a backup camera yet.

    Thanks!
