Yea I saw the mirrors but mine has the night dimming and the Bluetooth for my phone in it so i don't think I wanna go that route. Probably would be fine with a monitor that comes with most kits. Just not sure what kit to get cause you can find one on Amazon with decent reviews for $45, which seems to cheap but it has good reviews. Then there's the obvious better ones for $150-200. Just seeing if the better ones are worth the money or should I just try the cheap one from Amazon.

Not a problem at all wait till you hit my age and ask a question lol
As mentioned there are tons of aftermarket radios that will do the trick,, Depends on your budget, But the more you spend on a unit the better the picture and sound from the radio ! I also learned you get what you pay for ,A better unit will usually hold up better then a cheapo. If you travel a lot the GARMIN GPS/Back up camera is a good option and is a good brand. They also have a refurb section to save a few bucks, I have a Old Garmin Refurb GPS that is 10+ years old FYI

Yea I saw the garmin kits and they seem nice but I already have the factory nav in my truck so that seemed a lil unnecessary. But that's good to know a refurb is still working after that long!

So you have the factory Nav in your truck then Maybe this OEM kit will work, Has to be flashed at the dealer to get it to work. I do not know of any hacks to bypass it.. Here are a few I had bookmarked when I was looking.. Also You Tube and on sight here tons of install info
OEM Kit
OEM MOPAR Backup Camera for RAM 82214240 | TascaParts.com


I found a Crutchfield kit
https://www.crutchfield.com/S-5flYxl...ra-System.html

Aftermarket
Yada Backup camera BT53328M-1 - Read 5 Reviews on Yada #BT53328M-1

I'm considering that yada aftermarket kit. Seems to have good reviews. That mopar kit is for the newer Rams.

Same for the price you almost can't beat it. I would only want a bigger screen like my navigation but beggars can't be choosers I guess

I have a 2013 Big Horn with the 8.4 UConnect radio. I do not have the backup camera. Can you tell me where the camera goes? Does it mount to the bumper? Do I need a hole in bumper for camera? Im seriously looking into doing this to my truck.

On yours it goes in the tailgate handle. Would have to get another handle with the camera hole in it.
