    What do I need to look for in a quality back up sensor? Brand? Features?

    Picking up a 2010 Tacoma D-cab tomorrow. Can buy a back up sensor kit from local vendor at dealer cost and install it myself for $200. Installed it would be $500. Have no idea of brand or if the kit includes a camera I don't need.

    Then I see wireless back up sensors on Amazon for $69 that include a small screen showing the distance to an object. Will continue search but thought posting here to people who know what to look for would help.

    What back up sensor do you have? Make and model would help.

    Search and compare different brands. I would never need something like backup sensors so I don't know anything about them. I've never seen backup sensors on a Tacoma so I'm sure you will have a tough time finding info on here. I can't see these being at the top of anyones mod list lol.As with anything you get what you pay for.
