Got the Mopar commander backup camera kit installed in my 2013 JK with a new 430 RBZ.

The video is extremely blurry,

and the thing reminds me of 8 bit color images - it's very gradient.

Perhaps someone can give me advice on what to check?


The back of the RBZ has three wires, one is camera shield, the other two are video signal and video return, I believe.

dealership did the install, so I'm going to take it back to them to fix. The issue is the dealer has to order a new camera kit, and is 70 miles from where I live.

Anyone have technical ideas of what could be causing / injecting the noise?
I checked and the lens is clean, without any film on it.
The image is the same with the tailgate swung out, so it's not like its focusing on the spare tire, and depth of field causing issues.

That doesn't seem like anything but typical for a rear backup camera. They aren't meant to be high-definition, they are simply there to help you see if a child or a bike etc. is behind you.

But the image isn't consistent with what others with mopar commander camera in JK or JKU with 430 non nav (RBZ) have
