    Watch this video for install. I’ve had mine for about six months. No issues so far.

    I like it. It's really useful for parking and on the trail. It would be nice if the front camera I got from them was higher resolution though.

    The only alternative I know of is from Taco Garage:

    @MESO I got in the original order for the puddles, I also order the puddles switch. I have yet to install them!!!

    is there anything, updated cables or connections? I believe I read somewhere there was something like that to send you my order # just trying to confirm. Thank you.

    I installed my puddle pod kit this past weekend. Not too difficult but give yourself plenty of time so you don't have to rush through it. Thanks to everyone who posted tips and pictures in this thread.

    I had to do the same thing on my 2019. That smaller connector didn't have much slack in it either so it was a little tricky to get things situated in there but my A-pillar cover went back on without a bulge.

    Brought the truck in for maintenance and a tech asked if “the lights” were a dealer option? I said, “No they are a MESO option.”... and walked away. He looked very confused :notsure::rofl:

    @MESO those switches are beauty. Installation was super easy, can’t say enough good things about the work you do.

    PS you should look into doing an Anytime backup camera as I see a lot of people complaining about quality issues and inconsistencies between kits. Your quality is always top notch. But I know you’re very busy!

    Have any of those people simply tried a different camera? I got one off Amazon for less than 40$ and it’s as good as my oem rear cam. I don’t have a controller for it yet and I just plugged it into my crux box to check the quality. I’ll probably just end up with the anytimebackupcamera switch and harness only option. Unless MESO designs something and then I’d most likely buy that lol.

    Yeah I just ordered the 2020 kit from R4T and I got the Natika cam off Amazon like most others have suggested

    @MESO the people have spoken! Let us know when your camera kit will hit the first production run haha
