    Maybe your just wanting a full view of whats behind you, but mounting that camera in your brake light will not be much help to you when backing up, hooking up to a trailer, etc...

    Even the new tacos with the tailgate cams restrict vision a bit directly behind you since they have to be angled down.

    A much easier install would be near your rear bumber somewhere and also provide you the best vantage point and depth perception, IMO
