What exact components did you use to install your backup camera? I see your homemade bracket, the camera wire and how you fished it through the rear tailgate.. what did you do from that point? I read this entire thread and I got lost with what wiring harness you used to connect to the 730. I see you sold one harness.
You have a clean setup.. I have the same hole and grommet in the tailgate on my 2013.
What are the results? Split screen work? What Kenwood camera did you use?

The thing I like the most about this mod is that aftermarket backup camera kits are selling for $400 - $650 and for $75 bucks and a little time you can do this yourself.
Thanks again for all the help.

This group is great!
With the quick responses and showing service via my phone, it's done.
|09-20-2014 08:48 AM|
Thanks! I'm also downloading PDFs and showing this info all provided. They 'seem' to now have a clue.
The thing is when I made the appointment they seem to know exactly what I wanted and what to do, they even quoted me $40
But the tech had no idea what I was talking about

|chargermop||Yes they have to go into Chrysler's computer system and add dealer installed backup camera to your vehicle then they have to connect your vehicle to the I can't remember the name it's the new version of the star scan and update the Jeep.|

At dealer they seemed confused as to what to do as far as flashing radio for rear view camera
Any key words to help them out?

|dmako||Getting my 430n flashed in a few hours, hope my wiring worked.|
|09-19-2014 10:29 PM|
|ikanspelwel||The park assist lines are from the camera and not a function of the 730n radio.|
|09-19-2014 09:52 PM|
|wrix||Agreed. Looks like the 730 has the solid horizontal red green and yellow lines and the 430 has broken lines in the view.|

Here is a shot of mine with stock reverse lights using this camera: Amazon.com : Gino 1/4" CCD Flush Mount Waterproof Truck Car Reverse Backup Rear View Camera : Vehicle Backup Cameras : Car Electronics
It's my opinion the stock lights and this camera work great together.

I finished my backup camera install over the weekend.
I used a $18 camera from Amazon and a $15 TFT monitor from Amazon.
The monitor has 2 inputs, so I can add a front cam in the near future. Plus $15 is far less than the $110 my dealer wanted to flash my HU!
Camera mounted on underside of taillight, tapped reverse power just inside there as well.
Cheap screen, may move it to right side of steering wheel near that mystery vent thing. Grabbed reverse only power near driver's seat before the line goes under the seat and merges into the larger mess of wires. Will tap the 12v in dash if I want full time key on power.
All in all, easy and worth it. I don't have any blind spots in reverse now, which is great with all the kids in my 'hood.

I'm using the same camera as XJ-Boonie. It works great imho. I'll admit tjat at night if there's a head light shining directly into it, it can get a little hard to see things around it. But for ambient light at night it works well and I have no complaints.
|09-15-2014 08:55 AM|
That's the camera I have (direct link to Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...?ie=UTF8&psc=1)
The picture is good at night, but obviously it depends on the surrounding lights. I upgraded my reverse lights with LEDs and they're really bright, so that obviously helps.
Overall, it's a great camera. One of the main reasons I bought it is because it has a 170 degrees view. Sometimes I ride with a bike rack and wanted to be able to see 'around' it and not just directly behind me.

|xj-boonie||I got this camera and harness and it works on my 2012 manual with the 730n radio.|
|09-15-2014 08:02 AM|
My dealer graciously did the reflash prior to delivery without a charge.

|billp911||What brand of cameras are people using? I installed a Pyle PLCM39FRV and the color sucks. It also has such a bad picture at night you can't use it. Thought the camera was bad so Amazon set me a second one. Still bad.|
|09-13-2014 01:47 PM|
|xj-boonie||Started Wednesday evening with camera install and finished up Friday morning at dealer. $110 at dealer but oh well. Works great.|

Dealer 1 $120 to flash dealer 2 $40 have appointment for next Saturday.

Here's what it looks like with a hitch
I followed these instructions and everything went relatively smoothly. I mounted it in the exact same location in the bumper as the original poster suggested.
My only issues were that (a) my Jeep dealer (Danvers, MA) extorted $100 out me for the Starscan software update to the 430 head unit and (b) I cracked some of the tabs that hold the trim pieces that sandwich the subwoofer cover around the roll bar when trying to remove them. It went back together OK, but there are some gaps in the seam where the pieces don't mate quite as nicely as before.
In case you were wondering, below is a view of camera view with a ball hitch attached. It sure makes lining up the trailer much easier.

|wrix||You have to put jeep in reverse and plug yellow composite wire into a portable DVD player to test camera. No way that I know of to test radio harness.|
|09-10-2014 12:43 PM|
I ended up buying the MyGig Lockpick v5. Wired everything and installed the camera in the center cap of the spare.
One annoying thing I have now is that the video flickers. If I lightly tap in/around the radio, it flickers from a great, vivid picture, to one that looks like it's a bad VHS dub and slightly darker. I guess I'll rip out the dash again this weekend to ensure that I got all the connections on their tight.
