Are the JKs with a 430N radio head pre-wired to the rear for a backup camera?

I was looking at the Brandmotion. I'm just looking at a rear camera for backing due to the visibility issue. The big struggle for me has been camera placement. Do I want the spare tire mount or license plate mount?

I would recommend the spare tire mount. it's centered, and relatively high up which provides a good view all around. The license plate mount will see behind, but will also be blocked to the far left side by the spare tire.

No JK was ever built with a backup camera. I added mine with dealer flash and Qteck camera and wiring. No issues. Mounted in spare tire.

I too added a backup camera to my Jeep. Mine is mounted off the spare, I used the Alpine harness to hook into my 430N. Running the wires and hooking up power/ground is simple. There are many threads and YouTube videos on the process. Now is a perfect opportunity to pickup OBD JScan and a Bluetooth obd2 dongle. JScan can activate the camera and do so much more for the same or less money the dealer will charge. You will not regret doing it yourself with JScan.

My concern with the spare tire mount was not having a tire cover. I guess with larger tires I wouldn't have a cover anyway.


Hey jeep63, Where did you get the JScan and dongle?
