Rear view camera on 08 Rubicon?

Does anyone know, if it's possible to install some aftermarket rear view camera on 08 JKU rubicon with factory GPS unit and have it connected to this OEM unit? If any ideas on how to do it and what brand to use, please let me know.Thanks.

I am certainly not an expert on the subject but I did manage to install the following and make it work on my 2010 Sahara.

RBZ radio, the latest model, sourced from e-bay,
Parkview camera and wiring harness intended for a Commander,
Homemade housing made from a trailer hitch brake light unit from Harbor Freight.

The RBZ radio is already set up to accept the camera signal and it works very well. Installation was not terribly difficult but figuring out what to hook where was trying.

The good part is it is all Mopar and works well together.

Yes, it's just a matter of buying a compatible camera and plugging it in. That's what the guy at my stereo shop told me and he had compatible cameras.
