Offroad camera- installed with good results

I just installed an off road camera with good results, I used dual AV input rear view mirror and the other input is for the backup camera. The front camera gets power direct with an on/off switch under the steering wheel. Total $100 for 2 cameras, cables and the mirror.

I can easily see under the jeep and I can see obstacles, i am not concerned about the exposed location of the front camera since the suspension is much lower to the ground..

I bought the electronics from a local car accessories but its pretty simple install., you can pick the brand that is right for you.. Just make sure the camera has a wide angle view and its water proof.

1 - rear view mirror with 2 video input
2- i used the LED light wires to get the power source for the mirror
3- wired the rear camera to the reverse light
4- also wired the blue cable (on/off) that makes the mirror switch on/off when reverse light is on
5- for the under camera, the power and video cables goes thru the driver side firewall and as u see the on/off switches are for the under camera and the 2nd for the fwd camera when i buy it.

I am planning to put a forward camera and i will wire it to the same video input, i can decide which camera to use by the power switch

Sorry for my English.. Not my first language.

I can't believe I haven't seen this done before. Thanks for the info.

I'm gonna have to add this to my list of "fun mods to do when I have spare cash laying around".
