For all of you interested in a back-up camera, this is all you need. If you have a 430, 430N, or 730N, you can have a back-up camera using your display. I owe a special thanks to two forum members, simadownow6988 and TheJackal, for their detailed instructions, and links to the exact parts.

The license plate camera cannot be mounted with the camera on top since the license plate light is in the way. You have to mount the plate upside down (180 degree rotation), but then, the image is upside down as well. A simple solution is to remove the camera from the license plate, and rotate it 180 degrees. 180 + 180 = 360, and it is back to "normal" operation.


  1. License Plate Camera (remember that we had to flip the camera) for $45: TaoTronics® TT-CC17 Waterproof Color CMOS Car License Plate Frame Mount Rear View Backup Camera with 8 IR LED Night Vision (170 Degree Viewing Angle / Distance Scale Line / Zinc Metal Casing / Black)
  2. Harness for $23: You absolutely need this harness. PAC CHYRVD Rear Video Retention Cable For Select Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep Vehicles
  3. Female to female video coupler for $1.50: Amazon.com: C2G / Cables to Go 29507 75-Ohm RCA Video Coupler: Electronics
  4. Jeep Dealer flash/program to activate camera: Cost varies by dealer, some do it for free, some charge a flat rate. I paid $121.
  5. Labor charge: I paid $135.

Not a bad option but $100 more you can get a Nav TV or Piclock and get more functionality.

Quick question...I'm doing this to my jeep and am taking it in for the flash tomorrow. My questin is on the harness, Did you cut yours and modify or just plug it in since wires are paralleled anyways?

There is a hole to plug the harness into NEXT to the factory harness.

No need for any cutting...
Just gather all the the other non-used wiring neatly using zip ties and tuck them aside for possible future access and use.
Now you have what you need for your setup.

An added benefit to using the PAC harness, as it outputs video from the DVD player of the headunit to the set of 3 RCA plugs labeled "output to overhead LCD". I didn't have sound from the 2 audio(red/white) cables, but I did have video on the Yellow RCA plug. Sound played out the speakers as it normally does.

This one for some reason did not work for me, the video just scrolls. I posted another thread looking for answers...but can't figure it out. I had another brand that worked perfect so it can't be wiring?

Ok thanks... Just got a 2014 Shara and love it... But I am kinda use to the back up cam on the 13 ford explorer.... I keep looking at the screen...

Now i was just reading over in another thread here that there are two different nav systems in Jeep wranglers... I believe mine is the one with the Garmin system....

What are the differences? Will any dealer know what to do? I mean I try to avoid those places if I can...

If you have a factory unit any dealer should know how to do it.
