FYI I just used the fiero video to install this on a Hard Rock edition with the steel bumpers. I believe after completing mine, it can actually be done on the steel bumper without having to remove it.

I also want to make sure the camera has reference line images. My wife bought a new Lexus RX and the back up camera has no reference lines. Piece of crap! It's just a black and white blurry image.
Just as an FYI Stay away from that chrysler camera. I've heard nothing but bad things. You can get an Amazon ccd camera for $25 that will work perfectly.

you need these 3 parts
Amazon.com: PAC CHYRVD Rear Video Retention Cable For Select Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep Vehicles: Car Electronics
Amazon.com : Gino 1/4" CCD Flush Mount Waterproof Truck Car Reverse Backup Rear View Camera : Vehicle Backup Cameras : Car Electronics
Amazon.com: C2G / Cables to Go 29507 75-Ohm RCA Video Coupler: Electronics

you do not need to cut and solder anything with the above PAC CHYRVD Rear Video Retention Cable it is plug and play.

you will also need 2 quick wire splices to tap into the reverse and ground wires.
I bought a 50 pack from harbor freight for $3.00

Nice to know but I want to remove the Sahara trim so it looks like I'll have to drop bumper. Right now I have my camera in the hitch.

Resist My previous vehicle had a backup camera and I really miss it. After getting my 2015 JKU Hard Rock I noticed rear visibility is limited and I absolutely want to install a backup camera in it. I just have to decide on a cost effective and easy install system that works well with my 730N.

And a female to female video coupler to plug the camera harness in to the radio harness.

The radio harness plugs in to the empty port on the back of the radio....

Does harness simply plug in without any modification?
What did you use to get from camera at back to dash?

this harness

and you can always try to make friends with some techs - you might find someone willing to do some side work in exchange for beer - its like a 10 minute process to flash so not that much effort on their part.

So i am checking out this unit here 2007-Current Jeep Wrangler Rear Vision System for Factory Display Radios 9002-8827 - For Factory Display Radios - Cameras - seems like the best camera option because i dont have to drill a hole into the bumper and it comes with the flashing device to unlock the mygig, only downside is that it wont let me have any other inputs to plug in so price is kind of high for just the camera and the flashing tool.

I found one other product here JEEP WRANGLER Rear View Backup Camera System that seems to have the lockpick piece one of the guys mentioned and the same brandmotion tire mount camera; just want to know if anyone has seen this, installed it, or knows anything about the quality before i make my mind up. Since i want to add the front camera too i think this may be the way to go. appreciate any input thanks guys

It's all about who you know, it cost me two six packs of beer to get it flashed....got friends at the dealership. Haven't gotten the camera hooked up yet, but when I put her in reverse the screen switches and tells me to check my surroundings so that's a good sign.

Raceyjerry44 NRJK127 thanks so much that was actually tremendous help and exactly what i was looking for. Ok so i called up lockpick and i like their module a lot because it will unlock the mygig and provide me with the inputs i need but they dont carry any camera that is good for my jeep. anyone try the brandmotion camera for the rear tire, how did that one work out?
According to my calculation the lockpick and the brandmotion camera will run me around 600 plus install. the navtv module with harness is like 370 plus camera so that ends up being more. I am going to do some more research on camera options then pull the trigger on one. let me know if you guys have some thoughts, thanks

Any thoughts on what type of module or plug in device i might need in order to get 2 cameras set up?
I know the quote isn't directed at me, but allow me to step in. You'll need a seperate passthrough system (common ones used are the coastaltech "LockPick" or NavTV). Both of these allow for additional cameras, as well as some added functionality such as inputing nav in motion, aux outputs, aux inputs (not just cameras) etc.
