    Nice! I have always wanted one of these but didn't want to wire one up on a truck with 120k on it.

    I would agree 100% that anyone who does a decent amount of trailering should have one of these as they are a huge timesaver. After not having one for years, I made sure that my new truck had one and they are especially helpful when backing up in tight parking lots.

    I have one on my Duramax- its the Kind that is attached to the license plate holder, and its waterproof! Wouldn't ever have a truck without one again! although I do tow a dump trailer and landscape trailer on a daily basis.

    I spent $50 for a HD camera and a mirror/monitor and I won't get a truck without one either. Super easy to install.

    An added feature I didn't think is I can see on the camera when I left the tailgate down. With a tonneau cover there is a giant void back there. You can also see every imperfection in the asphalt. I have grid marks to tell me how close something is and they help to back into a space as you center the grid between the lines on the asphalt. This viewer has a spot for another camera so you could add one to the trailer and view from the end of the trailer prospective and have an RCA connector at the hitch. My friend put one on his 5th wheel.

    I have wireless cameras and double din displays in both my ol Ford ('01 SD) and my even older Burb ('90)

    Kind of like an automatic garage door opener, once you have one, you cant imagine NOT having one!

    Plus I love the way people look when I can put the ball under the tongue every time. I did find painting the end of my trailer tongue orange really helps.

    How was running the wire on that 01 SD from the cam to the HU? Or did you have a shop do it? The newer fords have the cam built into the Logo right under the tailgate handle so it's practically invisible. I've got a nice spot right above the bumper that will not get hit by the tailgate moving and seems pretty protected yet visible.

    Do you have the MyGig Lockpick? Excellent upgrade!
