    Anyone put a back up camera on their truck? Any recommendations? Would like to make hooking up to my trailer a lil easier.

    i added one on the front and the rear. both are audiovox.any aftermarket will do for what they are.i should add they work way better at night if you have installed pods or flush mount backup lights.i have both.

    Is yours a wireless one or wired? Wireless would be nice but worries me on loosing connection.

    Plenty of threads about adding one and a ton of You Tube videos to help install.. I had the a OEM installed last week at my Dealer 525$ but that can run up to 1k$ depending on the dealer.. The OEM camera kit is less then 300 $. 2/3 hr install and the marker lines will move w/the steering wheel unlike after market which are fixed I believe..Plus the OEM need s to be flashed at the dealer, Tones of after market and the cheapest version is a GARMIN GPS 67 LM I think ,it can have a camera to it , not sure if it is wireless! I have the Uconnect Factory radio and it was made to take the Camera.. If you have a regular radio you will need a after market radio that is Back up camera friendly. Also look in the search box for tons of threads on it.

    wired,so i can move it up to the camper when it's on the truck,or just the truck.i have about 4 feet of extra wire coiled up behind the bumper right now. fortunately,my kenwood dd has inputs for two cameras.rear one on a switch on the dash that i can turn on while moving forward and the front through the deck switch by tapping the screen.i can adjust the marker lines on both or make them invisible.

    I didn't look in the 4th gen but none came up when I searched in the 3rd gen. I don't believe it was an option from factory for any 3rd gens.

    Does the 3rd gen have the Uconnect Radio 5.0 or 8.4 ? If not the I would guess you need to go after market or a unit with a remote screen. Check out the Garmin GPS units or a radio upgrade

    you can also replace the rear view mirror with one with a camera monitor built into it.i almost went that route before my stock h/u shit the bed and i upgraded to the kenwood .

    No it doesn't. Guess I should've asked for input on aftermarket set ups in my first post so I didn't confuse people. Sorry about that.
