Default 2011 Back Up Camera Relocation

I'd like to get an ARE MX canopy with the walk-in back door http://www.4are.com/product/walkin/ which replaces the tailgate. The problem is I have the OEM back up camera set up. Is there a way to get a different camera to work with the 430 radio? I'd like to install one on the canopy to use when I have the canopy on and leave the OEM unit on the tailgate for use when I don't have the canopy on.

You might be able to get one of the license plate bracket camera, or mount it down on the bumper some way! Not too sure on this one!

some of the radio after market units
allow you to have a front & rear camera, others allow more than 2

just install one of those devices & use the front camera on the trucks canopy

check out ALLGIG & Lockpick websites for starters

Default 2 or 3 back up cameras

I am looking into something simular. I remove my tailgate to install a slide in camper. Would like to install a camera on the back of the camper and connect to the quick disconnect plug exposed with the tail gate removed. Anyone see issues with this?

Ditto on the slide in camper. Checked with Dodge and they have nothing and couldn't tell me if I could splice in a cable to a factory unit to extend it to the back of the camper. Sure would like to see a wiring diagram to see if its possable to make my own camera and mount it on top of the camper and be able to see over the back of the bike trailer.

this was stolen from a different forum

mygig lockpick. Hook that to the radio and it gives you rca input to hook the camera up to the factory radio. That allows you to watch the camera while you're driving also

Allgig setup, ask for Suzanne, to get discount

I have a small chepo camera that I will experiment with. Seem like if the wiring is already at the tailgate then there should be some sort of plug and play camera. I do like the aftermarket multi camera options too, but don't need that if simply relocating one camera is all that is needed at this time.

Thanks aeroshots intersted too see what you come up with. Also like the plug and ply units that GTyankee posted. Really like the overrides for the gps and other stuff for the long trips.
