Adding Rear camera Above Bed


Recommended Posts

Looking into doing this to my 19 LTZ.  I know original post was for SLT so was wondering if there could be any compatibility issues or reason why these parts wouldn’t work for the Chevy counterpart. Any info is greatly appreciated thanks

Should be coming in tomorrow.

you should think about returning the mirror you got and going with one that has a camera AND auto-dimming.. since you already have the harness.

 

I can confirm that the harness you have is the same as the one on my 2018 LT (to make my auto-dim mirror work, I had to add switched power to pin 6 and your harness looks to already have it.. )

my LT Z71 came with a manual flip rear view mirror (and OnStar).

The lack of update from fiatdale has me worried the retrofit isn’t going as smoothly as we had all hoped. Hope we hear soon really want to do this mod and I’m ready to order parts just wanted some confirmation it works.

Lack of update is for not coming on the forums daily. Parts were supposed to be in a couple weeks ago, just came in today. We figured shipments would happen sooner than they did after the strike but everything is still very delayed. Plan on installing tomorrow or Thursday. Don’t worry, it will work.

Good luck on the install.  Please take plenty of pics or even video and post all the parts needed.

So as an FYI, you cannot just buy the replacement light with camera, you need to buy the spoiler with the camera in order to get the complete harness. It’s a 2 piece harness on the spoiler (it doesn’t go all the way back to the mirror, you still need the coax). But if you buy just the lamp with camera, it will not plug into the coax extension to the mirror. I bought both to check it out, you need the whole spoiler to get the complete harness. ~$300. PN for black (not sure if they all come preprinted or not, but you can buy the complete spoiler assembly and remove the lamp / harness and put it in your existing spoiler so no extra painting cost is needed) is 84487008
