I saw an camera install where the license plate had a small hole drilled through the middle and the camera was mounted behind it, very clean looking. This was on a Texas plate which has the state image in the center between the license numbers, so it was easy to hide it. Other state plates may not work out as well, but it was a cool idea for a location other than the tailgate and kinda stealthy.

So, yes, my chepo camera worked fine with a makeshift wire job. I tried to get a replacement wire pigtail from Dodge, but it only comes with a new camera. I would prefer not cutting wires just yet. Anyone know of a means to get the wire pigtail that goes between the truck connection and the camera in the tailgate handle?

Okay, I'll splice into the factory wiring and install my own quick disconnet plug for the slide in camper rear camera.

I took the factory harness apart (easy to do) and spliced in wires to an additional plug. So now there are two plugs, one for factory camera and one for camera on camper--one or the other is used, not both at same time. I have the lock pick as well and have a front camera, rear camera, and camera on the car trailer. One more camera is going on top of the camper looking down at the trailer.

Hi Aeroshots,

Cold you post a pic or two on your camera wiring? I'll be doing this next week after I pick up my ARE MX topper with a walk in door.

Thanks,

Paul

Does anyone have any pics or a diagram on how to splice an aftermarket camera into the stock camera wiring? I just got my new topper on my 2011 2500. It has a full back door that replaces the tailgate so now I have no camera. I want to keep the OEM camera on the tailgate for use when I don't have the topper on. I just got a license plate mount camera today.
