Thanks man! Feel free to PM me if you get stuck or have any questions. Oh, and I can't take credit for the tweeter mod. That was all Pressurized, but it's a good one.

If you have a MyGig LockPick, I believe you can skip the part about going to the dealership & the harness with the camera connection should have come with the MyGig LockPick. So, all you really need is the camera itself. This all comes from personal research as I don't have a LockPick, so anyone that has one feel free to chime in and correct me if I've misspoken.

$11 for the camera - 1/4" CCD Flush Mount Waterproof Backup Camera

$25 for the retention cable - PAC CHYRVD Rear Video Retention Cable

Plus whatever it costs you to get the dealership to flash your CPU.

You do need to add a female to female RCA adapter to the harness to plug in the camera. It's available at any radio shack or you can pick it up here:

I don't think I've gotten the same answer to that question from two people, but I believe it should be 0.5 labor hours or less. Some folks get it done for free, others get quoted an insane amount. I've found 0.5 labor hours to be a happy medium. At the current shop rate + tax, budget around $50 out the door.

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. =)

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.

Also the $55 was from oemautopartsco
