Default Adding Park View Back Up Camera?

Am looking at a loaded Laramie at a dealer. It has most everything I want except for the Park View back up camera. Is it possible to add it to this truck?
It has the 730 Nav sound system with DVD, and rear seat video system. Odd that it wasn't ordered with.

Thanks,
Bill

I had mine installed by the Dealer as part of the deal when I purchased my Laramie. It's something best left to them because if they do it then it's covered under warranty.

They also need to add the option on DealerConnect and reflash the PCM to make it work.

No issue having it Dealer installed.

If you can get them to do it before you pick it up as part of the "deal" that would be the easiest way.


I know that the mygig has an option to enable or disable the rear camera, but i assume that the truck needs to know its there before that will work.

I got my Mopar camera installed a few months ago, It works great. I ordered it on Ebay and got it for about half the price the dealer wanted for it. I just had the dealer reflash the pcm and then took the camera to a local car shop and got it installed for $75. It cost me about $425 doing it this way instead of the $800 it would have cost me getting it done through the dealership.

I had the dealership install mine
When i bought my '09 back in February '09, it didn't have a locking tailgate & people were starting to steal tailgates & tail lights by October '09. I decided that an open tailgate gives light figured people access to the tail lights, & i liked the idea of a locked tail gate anyway.
I went into the Parts Dept. & ordered the tail gate handle with the lock, the parts guy mentioned that there were 2 handles available, he called someone on his magic phone & found out that 1 handle had a camera & lock, the other just the lock.
Seeing that they would have to open up the tailgate anyway, I ordered the camera & lock, i use it once in a while, more at night, i like the night vision part

I bought a lockpick for 200 (ebay) Then bought a license plate cam for 139.99 on ebay. You can get them a lot cheaper. Then I installed it myself.

Done for 339. Could have done it for under 300 with a cheaper camera, but I splurged.

I am looking to upgrade my res radio to the ren radio so I can get the back up cam. Does anybody know if any aftermarket cam can be hooked up to that radio or do u have to go with the mopar cam.

As far as I know, you need a lockpick to install an after market camera.

Did you have your PCM flashed to be able to use the camera?
