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

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.

There are at least 8 mentions of them in this thread.

Where did you buy that mirror? I can't find it on Amazon. Is it easy to take out the stock mirror to replace with this?

augsburg Would love to find a back-up camera solution for my 2014 JKU. However, the two reviews listed on the vender's website for this particular product are not stellar. Also, the install requires that you have no spare tire cover. In wet, rainy Seattle, the outside of our vehicles get coated with grit and grime in the winter. So I prefer to run with a tire cover - in case I ever have to use the spare, it is not a grimy mess to manhandle. (Yes, I realize I will need to clean the camera lens. My two previous SUV's had back-up cams and parking sensors. In fact, my X5 came with 5 cameras installed.)

MWRitter Question for anyone running the Commander camera: do you have any condensation issues? Mine has moisture in the lens making it almost useless. Just curious if anyone else is having a similar issue.

LazJK Hi everybody,


I followed this topic since the beginning and someone asked if this setup fix on a JK manual transmission. I have seen the nobody really confirmed. I have myself a 2012 JK with manual transmission and I would like to know if I won't waist money if I buy this setup :

Amazon.com: PAC CHYRVD Rear Video Retention Cable For Select Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep Vehicles: Car Electronics

With this camera :

Amazon.com : Esky EC170-08 100% Waterproof Vehicle Car Rear View Backup Camera High-definition CCD 170 Degree Viewing Angle - Rearview Camera : Car Electronics

Thanks you all

I'll try to post pictures later and all of the equipment information, but I had someone else do the install (I don't trust myself). The installer I used had better experiences with Nav TV (though you'll see a lot of write-ups about the Lockpick as well) so I went with the Nav TV All-Gig (NAV-TV Corporation: ALLGIG_XG-HS Video in Motion bypass for Dodge, Chrysler and Jeep vehicles) with the A/V harness (NAV-TV Corporation: AllGIG A/V & Camera Harness). The camera was an Alpine, though I don't remember the exact model but it had nightvision on it because I was concerned with lighting. I had it mounted with a couple screws right above the hitch and below the 5th wheel. I've seen installs through the 5th wheel but was concerned with the angle and missing a kid shorter than the camera height right up against the vehicle. The bumper location allows me a view of basically the ground at the 5th wheel tire location and then back pretty far, estimating 20 feet but I'll try to get a better sense later. The very top of the screen barely shows the bottom of the 5th tire. I've tried the nav functions in motion and works perfectly.
Does this setup disable the speed on your nav? I use that more than the actual speedometer and I've read that the system basically makes your nav think your stopped so it freezes up the nav as well as stops it from knowing your speed and providing accurate destination times.
