    Thought the back up cam came standard on all models since like 2011 or so?

    its wiring for the backup cam...I believe it runs up your roof to your mirror. the 2013 guys buy the ebay kit that hooks it up to the touchscreen.

    My SR5 came with the backup cam....first one I've had. Pretty convenient, but I hate that you lose it when you have the tailgate down.
