      EagleChief,
      I saw in a dashcam post where you mentioned running your power from the overhead map light console. I understand how you did it, but was hoping you could help me out; Where did you get your ground? There's no where to get a good ground up in there that I can see. Did you use posi-taps for the connections?

      Appreciate any help / photos. I have a 2017 1500 Laramie.

        I tapped everything into the wiring for the rear window switch. I had a hard wire kit from the place my camera came from. I think I just had 2 wires to connect. My kit had included connectors.

        I spliced into the hot wire for the window switch, then (I believe) the negative and/or ground wire as well. They were both part of the sliding window wiring harness.
