I'd be interested too. The one installed on my Kenwood is mounted to the license plate bracket.

I'd also be interested in a flush mount back up cam. I came across a thread awhile ago about it, but haven't been able to find it again. I just picked up the DNX7160 and am waiting to have it installed in my 2011 Sport.

Really want the back up cam because I worry about kids running behind the Jeep.

I was thinking of trying to adapt the cam I have to view through one of the bold holes of my spare, but with a flat it would probably be a pain.

Not sure which Kenwood I have, but I wish I had spent the extra for the Mopar nav system. It's OK, but the Mopar unit is far superior.

I'm currently looking at this one on Amazon. I like the image overlay feature although I don't know how accurate it would be. I also can not tell if it has the fish eye lens or not.



I want to put it here, but I don't know how difficult it would be to cut the hole and run the wire. The simple answer is to run it through the trailer hitch, but I'd rather have a permanent solution.

If you get it figured out I want to do a flush mount in the front so I have trail vids!

tmclaugh....i was thinking of putting it there also, there isnt really a great place to install it so that the hitch is in sight...i'd rather drill into the plastic bumper then anywhere else, so that spot might be the winner

Hey Wrangler, can you take a pic of your install? I'm told my 7160 won't fit because it is a double din, and everything I'm reading says it won't work without learning some fiberglass fabbing (cause I can't pay for it). I'm going to try and return the 7160 now and am going to get an AVH-P5200BT with nav kit.

Kinda sucks because the 7160 was tax free with free shipping through AAFES. Oh well.

I'm just ordered this cam. There is another one left and it has the overlay and the fisheye view. If the night vision really sucks then that's a project for some LED fun and learning.

i had to cut a piece of metal out of the dash to get it to go in, which was really easy and took about 5 minutes....without doing that it wouldnt have fit in. but overall it looks pretty good and works well.... ill post a pic later today
