Well I figured it out. I tapped into the dash acc wire to get my power for the camera. Would delete the thread if I knew how.

Hi
I installed the alpine HCE C155. It's a cube style and if I had to do it all over again I would look for a flush mount. I wanted to go all alpine though so I got this one. I mounted to the bumper just above the tow hitch. I'm pretty happy with quality and install. My head unit is an alpine INE S920HD.

For what it's worth, if you have an aftermarket stereo installed, you should also have a wiring harness with a data interface. These generally provide various outputs like Vehicle Speed Sense, Parking brake, and Reverse. Does your Alpine headunit automatically switch to the backup camera when you put it in reverse?

Yeah it switches over automatically when I go into reverse. And I can select the camera for viewing manually as well. It's a neat parking lot feature but I still rely heavily on my mirrors.
