What are you using for a Backup camera and mounting location

As the title says.....

Which one are you using?
Do you like it?
How well does it work at night?
Pics?

Where did you mount it?
Pics?

Thanks!

I have seen the camera mounted in the license plate before and it looks cool. Like it you have the number 8 or 0 in your plate you cut a hole and mount it in there.

I do have a 0 in my number plate, something to think about, but then its pretty permanent, hrmmm, then risk getting stopped since the 0 won't look like an 0 so much lol.

I do like those, but don't like the price....I don't need a camera, just a toy at this point since my head deck can accept one, so I was thinking about the $30 or less ones all over eBay. But.......I do like that one lol

Ha! Yeah, nothing replaces turning your head and looking. This is just a novelty, nothing more.

That one is a little better and for $40 more will probably last longer then the Chinese knock offs on ebay.

Not bad, but looks to be pretty low, how much visibility do you have with it under there?

LOL yeah, that lift will help!!

OH, I saw the FORD emblem camera, cool but way too much coin.

Then found this searching, I could do this as I don't have a trailer hitch, then glue the cover I got for my hitch hole over the washer/nuts as I don't like the looks of the exposed hardware.
