2016 Reverse Camera install ...Pics of parts

2016 Rubicon with 430n... Searched all the threads and I assume the parts listed for earlier years apply to 2016s.

Dealer is flashing software for $50 and have $42 invested from Amazon. Made my own mount for $10.
PAC wiring listed in other threads is what I bought.

Good to go in this mod??

Yup, no change for 2016. My dealer charges $150, so you're getting a deal.

Dealer charged me $65 Saturday. I am doing this this weekend. I notice on your camera, a power wire bundled into the video cable as well. I plan on just tapping into the rear brake light wire.

That's my plan also... When all said and done, should just be the video cable running from front to back.
I'll probably modify that PAC harness once I know it's all working properly. Don't need that huge bundle stuffed behind the radio

I'm not sure where in St. Louis you live but I had mine flashed by Glendale Chrysler for $39. That was about a year ago so call them first to verify the price is still the same.

That's the place... Bought our new HR from them 3 weeks ago. They originally quoted $89, but after told them we purchased from them, he said $49.95. So $10 increase in a year, I won't sweat over that. I'll have $102 total invested when I'm done with this project.

When I first asked the service advisor about flashing it, he sounded like it can't be done. I explained the process, and the XAC code.. He went to talk to a tech, comes back and says "good to go".... Hope it goes smoothly tomorrow

Don't tap the BRAKE light wires, tap the REVERSE light wires. That way the camera will be powered when you are in reverse, not just when you step on the brakes.

You probably realized that and meant what I typed, but I just wanted to make sure you didn't confuse anyone else :-).

Nice. So just pac harness, dealer flash, Rca coupler, video cable from camera to pac harness and power of camera to reverse light? Did you ground it?

The power cable also has the ground wire and you use the ground from the reverse lights.

Yes... Amazon actually has the "kit" in a package.

If you pick the Gino camera ( I think that's the name)... It says buy it will this ... Gives rest of the parts.

That's the bundle

So did you end up just running the video cable? Did you modify the PAC harness? Also was there a YouTube video install that you followed?

Thanks, ordering parts tonight.

You can go to my build page. I recently did this and posted some pics. You need the PAC harness, A camera, Video coupler, Camera mount, Some quick taps/butt plugs, and some electrical tape. You also have to bring it to the dealer and get them to flash it for backup cam.

I followed this: Rear Cam Vid Install - JK

I followed the vid until he got to the front. The key is to splice the camera power into the rear reverse light wire and then ground it. Other than that, run it to the front, use the coupler, connect to rear camera input, and plug in harness.

Not to jack this guys thread. I wish I could've created the mount. I just bought mine. Pics are in my build thread.

Did you modify the PAC harness on your install?

Yes I did... Once I knew it all worked, I unplugged the harness, cut the stuff off I didn't need and called it a day.

And those are all the parts you need

Thanks, got my parts in yesterday and it will be my Saturday project.

Any tips you learned during the install process that would be helpful to know? Like don't do this or do this instead things?

Have my appointment with the dealer for Tuesday morning, $69.95 charge to flash the stereo.

Not really... It's so cut and dry it's pathetic.. Lol

The video cable I ran passenger side... Just snaked it under the trim... Under the split in the carpet under front passenger seat... Along middle console and up through glove box to back of radio.
Took no trim apart accept for tapping into the reverse lights on pass side.

What you doing for mount?

I still have to figure the mount out and fab it. I have the Smittybily oversize tire carrier and haven't found a prefab one online. I will post up some pics of what I do with that.

You need THIS.

This is what I used, and was included in my build thread. Many people use this mount with aftermarket carriers and wheels. Its designed so you can move it around.

Technically it may. You could slot one of the cut outs in the mount to go through that one mounting hole where the wheel butts up against it. Itll keep it tight. You could angle it, then re position the camera to account for the weird angle.

Anyone mount this camera in the bumper as shown in this YouTube video? In part II of the video he shows that view after it is installed. Looks pretty good.

I just did this over the weekend. Works great. The hardest part was adjusting the camera to get the picture level before pushing very hard to getting it to seat in the bumper.
