Reverse Camera Hardware and Installs

Okay I've seen a couple people with backup cameras but most people haven't shown photos of where they mounted them as well as the quality, price etc.

RF'ers show us your back up cameras and mounts and your opinions on the camera!

My next one will be mounted inside the tailgate handle or Ford emblem. That way you can see the hitch receiver when hooking up a trailer.

Already searched and really didn't find much useful information. All I saw was your posts regarding license plate camera etc however you really didn't get into details.

Thanks though when I have a couple of hours I'll go through and try to see if I find more information.

Thanks 04blackedge but I've seen that thread but it really doesn't show anything but a license plate mounted cam which brand unknown and what it looks like through a monitor is unknown too.

I guess I am looking for more specifics from everyone that has one.

The mirror is a stock 2011 OEM Ford Mirror from an F150.

The camera's were the 25$ ones off ebay

I mounted them flush into a plate surround.

I have another mirror if you want it.
