    Has anyone tried to use one of those new fangled RF backup cameras in their Tacoma? That would save running a video cable all the way to the front of the cab. Power is still required and I bet that can be picked up somewhere closer to the tailgate, perhaps the trailer wiring?

    The video quality looks much better if you just run a cable. It takes less than an hour to run a wire from inside the cab and down the frame rail. Just follow all the rear tail light wiring. The wiring is behind the kick panels, under the door sill, and then heads under the drivers seat and out through a grommet and then down the frame rails to the rear.

    I have seen them cheaper than that but then again that one has a very easy mounting system and is adjustable vertically too. They gave no specifications for the image quality but it is built as a "vehicle" camera and should be a little more tougher than a camera NOT meant to be vehicle installed. The reviews were great, hopefully someone here has got one and will chime in. :)
