    How about something like this? https://jollybuyers.com/products/10-full-touch-screen-stream-media-dual-lens-mirror-dash-cam for the rear view camera. I know its not much to go off of but just by looking at it would this work?

    I think the best bet would be this camera. This a marine company and ive used a few of there waterproof speakers so I would take my chances on their camera and its pretty cheap
    DM me were to ship one

    It's difficult for me to find one like that that I think will work with kits and stuff. I'm not super knowledgable as far as these cameras are concerned but just shopping around, most high def backup cameras that I found are bracket mounted not flush mount. I'll keep digging and let ya know if I find anything but I think this [ https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07KWV114Y/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_EqHCCbFDFTNAV ] the best I got so far.

    This [ https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07HYZ3YWY/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_XwHCCbX7FTBD0 ] may work as well but the picture quality doesnt seem to be as good. It's definitely budget friendly though.

    Thoughts?

    For the camera idea, I would actually like to see if we can get it integrated into a dash cam kit, like a front and back one.

    Any of the kits here on TW will work with standard dash cam output. Keep in mind that your display will limit your quality as well. So, using a 4K camera will still suck on a 480 display... However, it’s better that the display be the limiter.

    Ok, that sounds good. Only reason I'm asking is because I've only ever dealt with the Rexing V1LG which uses a micro USB cable (I think) for the rear camera. You might have to educate me on which dash cam systems you are using.

    Pyle is usually regarded as the lower end of quality in the 12v world. When I installed rear cams I would mostly use alpine and Kenwood cameras. But they have a ton more features and cost a little more.
    Maybe @destin_meeks can chime in on a quality flush bullet cam we can use as he’s in this field everyday.

    I can but I don’t have any designs like that yet.

    I typically go for Echomaster cams. The pcam-220 could be a good option for straight back viewing. Runs about $60

    Or the pcam-360 for an adjustable camera, to tilt down towards the bed a bit. Runs about $120

    *edit* I scrolled up a bit and see lots of talk of dash-cams so I may need to actually read what you’re looking for lol. I saw “flush bullet cam” in the 3rd brake light thread and in my head I saw the cameras in newer dodge trucks that look into the bed

    Something like this

    The pyle has a 1 Year warranty and i would probably throw a little silicone on it just in case anyways but i do that for everything.
    Also, the Pyle is only $23 and will connect into any monitor or set up someone wants to use.
