I just purchased the Mopar backup camera part #82211184. I will be installing on my 2009 as soon as it arrives. Do you guys think the installation instructors are pretty straight forward, and / or are there any tips I should know before beginning?

Also, I am aware I will have to bring the truck to the dealership afterwards to upgrade the TIPM.

Thanks in advance.

I installed the kit in my 2012.
The instructions are good up until you have to splice the wire into the backup lights.
Maybe I am not that bright, but the instructions are not that clear and I had a hard time finding the correct connection to unplug.
I needed to remove connector C5 Letter E - never found that stamped anywhere.
The diagram of the connector is not very good, luckily it specified a brown connector and there is only one brown one on my TIPM.

I had the dealer flash the truck before I installed the camera kit.
I got that idea from someone else that installed the kit.
Once flashed, I put the truck in reverse, the radio screen went blank with a "Check all surroundings" warning.
At that point I knew it was correctly flashed by the dealer.

I installed the kit the next day and knew if it did not work, it was me and not the dealership.
Worked the first try.

I had read a post by one person that installed the kit, got it flashed and it did not work. He messed with it and messed with it until he finally figured out that the dealer had not actually flashed the truck correctly.
There are two parts to the flash - 1. update the truck info at Chrysler - 2. update the info on the computer on the truck. - they only did #1.

The instructions that come with the kit include the instructions for the dealer.

If you have set up an account with moparownerconnect.com, after the dealer flashes the kit, it will show up there as a dealer installed option.
Like this:

I had them add the code for the RBZ radio I installed as well.

Tips:
The kit comes with lots of zip ties for securing the wiring harness under the truck - use as many as you can.

Once the dealer flashes, there is a new option on your radio setup menu that allows you to turn the rearview camera on and off.

Good luck,
hope this post is helpful.

I contacted my dealer to ask about the TIPM reconfiguration, and they will charge $100. Since this is higher than I was expecting to hear, I asked what it would cost for them to do the entire install, and they said $300.

I work offshore for the oil and gas industry and only have a week of free time. Do you guys think the extra $200 is worth allowing them to do the entire install?

It really depends how much your time is worth.
It takes about an hour or 2 to do the install.
Most of that time is under the truck running the cable or running it to the radio.

I enjoyed doing it, and I like knowing exactly how it is installed.

I wish I had installed the auto-lock tail gate at the same time.

most backup cameras have lines. the lines are generated by the camera them selves. for the ram the lines should be almost dead on and the viewing angle is pretty good. i can see the ram logo on my tailgate as well as the top of an f150 i'm backing up against from about 2 feet away. from left to right id say its about 160* viewing angle i can put a dr pepper can on my bumper about 6" from either side and see it. its definitely better that the amazon one i had for a little while till i got the OEM one from a salvage yard.

If i recall correctly, there are 2 different cameras with the lines
1 has straight lines all of the time
the other has curving lines when you turn the steering wheel

Straight Lines

moving lines, again as mentioned, this is built into the camera, not the radio, or so i am told
