Rearview Camera Installation

I am a new SRT8 owner since last Friday. One of the things that I can't live without is a rear camera, I have had one on every car over the last 10 years. After researching this forum I found an excellent video on removing the center light bar on the trunk. I also found this website that has all Chrysler electrical diagrams which took the guess work out of identifying the backup light wire the first time: https://techauthorityonlinedemo.extr...ew/classic.htm. Piece of cake running my camera power hookups, thanks to this Forum. Any suggestions on camera and interior monitor placement? It is great to have a research engine like this.

Welcome to the forum, congrats on the new SRT.
There are many previous posts on this. You can buy a camera and use your in dash monitor for the camera viewing. The lock pic interface will give you the connections you need. You can even put in a forward facing camera as well. Use the search feature here to see the other posts or wait until someone can post a few links for you.

As I have grown older, I've learned that pleasing everyone is
impossible- but pissing everyone off, is a piece of cake.

Adding a backup camera was the second mod I did to my car, bought a used a mygig V2 lockpick from ebay for about $100-$125 (New V5 sells for about $350, but the V2 does all I need, don't care about multiple camera support, etc.) and a $40 license plate frame camera from Amazon, I am not completely happy with the camera, I think there may be moisture in the lense as sometimes the image is foggy, sometimes clear, but hey it was $40. Tapping power and running wire was easy, just tap into the trunk mounted fuse box on the optional lighter socket fuse that can be jumpered 2 ways (3 legs), and run the video cable to the front along the passenger side under the door sill, most parts pop out 2 screws under the passenger side door sill pop out have to be removed to get the panels in front and behind the door loose. Surround around the radio pops out and radio is held in by 4 screws, total install time well under 1 hour.
