Having a BACKUP camera has nothing to do with driving , it has to do with backing up

I backup everywhere I park so being able to see my rear makes it a lot easier also having one helps when backing period

But it might be my fault since I put a tire in the way of the rear window

Especially when you hang a giant 35 or 37 of the back it becomes a little interesting to backup.

The control box power is connected to the same wires as the backup camera.

A common complaint of a lot of these aftermarket rear sensor kits is that they beep when you are moving the transmission from park to drive and as you pass reverse, they let out a warning beep letting you know they are on. This one does it too. It's an easy fix with either a timer relay or a capacitor, but the beep doesn't bother me.
Thanks for the tip and the link on the backup sensor system. The beep when going through reverse is not a problem. At least you know it's working.

I took some scrap metal and bent it into a box. Then used automotive double sided tape to attach everything.

Also the $55 was from oemautopartsco

Not concerned with having night vision - I have LEDs reverse lights. There was a thread on here somewhere about them. Lots of white LEDs, with a lens, really does a great job illuminating the rear when it's in reverse.
Post up once you get it installed I would be curious to see might consider changing my setup if it works well thanks Chris.

KPM171 Bad Dog, here is a pic of the hitch rack installed. It's not too bad actually. I think my saving grace is that since my spare sticks out so far, I had to put an extension on the hitch to push it farther back away from the Jeep and the camera.

Anyone use either of these cameras and a bike rack?
Hey Bad Dog, I'm using the Gino CCD that I've mounted directly above the hitch (you can see the very top of my hitch on the bottom of the camera screen) and I also have a Yakima hitch rack that I use for bikes/snowboards. I don't have a screen shot of how much the view is obscured by the rack, but I'll try to get one for you when I have some down time.

b.lister I've got a stupid question:

If you have replaced the 130RES HU with the 430RBZ, does something need to be flashed in the Jeep for that upgrade BEFORE getting the StarScan flash for the backup camera?

Thanks.

Could you make use of this Amazon cable? Probably, but it might not be simple plug-n-play.
I'll admit this isn't the exact cable I used, but it looks identical to it. I popped the 22 pin in the spare port on the back of the 430, used one of the attached RCA plugs for my camera feed, and covered up all the extra connectors with a little piece of foam (I hate rattles). No cutting or splicing needed. I'm picking up one of these to do a camera in another rubi. I'll let you guys know how it goes. And If I'm dead wrong on this, I'll fess up to that too. =)

That is for rear VES. It can be used for backup camera but does need to be modified. Watch this video to see the mod.
