Adding Rear camera Above Bed


Recommended Posts

Just want to thank FiatDale and everyone else for all the great info and help I finally got my retrofit done. I guess the only good thing about having the dreaded rear window leak was that I got the dealership to install the parts I had for this rear view mirror brake light retrofit installed at the same time as my window fix without any additional cost. Such a great addition and definitely recommend the mod.

Guys does this also add the Bed View feature on the infotainment screen?  I'm trying to locate a 2020 TB in my area, and very very few come with the trailer Camera Package.  Adding this after the fact may be an option for me.  

 

Also - is it required to add the mirror if all i am looking for is the bed view?

The bed view is a different camera. You can have either one separately, or both. I have no idea about adding the bed view to an existing truck. I imagine you would need the trailer camera package to add it.

FYI, I have been watching ebay for parts since this thread was started and there is now a seller that is selling spoiler assemblies for 225 that are painted and look to include the needed harness. I've also had the tapping noise coming from my spoiler so I've ordered all the parts to do the camera upgrade and hopefully fix the tapping at the same time. Managed to get the mirror for $540 and the cable for $30.

Excited to give this a try.

This is great! Is this something I would be able to add to my 2019 WT model?

Yes! It is s stand alone camera and does not communicate with truck computer.  Its absolutely worth the effort, best MOD I've done.

Do you think the Work truck would have the harness above the headliner to plug the rearview mirror in to?

Don’t you have to involve infotainment software updates to upgrade the mirrors?

This thread has the info. For me, it happens whenever it is hot outside and the roof starts to cool off. Does it really bad when I wash the truck in the afternoon and I spray water on the spoiler.
