    Here’s the camera and harness:

    I wasn’t sure if I needed this coupler, but of course I did. Picked up a pair at Walmart:

    I started with plugging the harness into the back of the radio.

    I followed the instructions in this link to take part of the dash apart and get access to the back of the radio:

    I also got some good info from this link for doing the wiring and mounting the camera:

    https://wayalife.com/showpost.php?p=453431

    Next I wired in the power connector to the passenger side reverse light. A white wire with gray stripe is the power. Use a 12volt test light to confirm and don’t forget to have the key in the run position, trans in reverse with parking brake set. Test again with the trans in park and you shouldn’t have any power. I snipped, stripped and spliced in the camera power wire:

    Attach the ground to the tailgate hinge bracket, connect the video cable and make sure everything works.

    Drill the camera mounting hole through the plastic bumper cover using the hole saw supplied with the camera. The plastic cover is hollow in the middle so I used a 1/2” drill to make a hole through the second part and wallowed out the hole to make a slot. It was difficult to get the camera wires with RCA plugs through the bumper holes and a pry-bar was needed to get the wires over the metal part of the bumper.

    After that struggle, I cut a small slit into the rubber drain plug and routed the power plug to the camera plug, connected and wrapped with electrical tape:

    Attachment 322839

    The video cable took the same route and continued up the passenger side floor, into the dash, up over the glove box an coupled to the radio harness. Add some electrical tape to secure the connections, tuck the remaining wire and your good to go.

    Daytime:

    Nighttime:

    Attachment 322845

    The LED lights really do a nice job brightening the area.

    Total cost for this project was $42 and took about 4hrs to complete. The wife’s KK is next.
    Do you have a parts list or link to the harness you used?

    First day of 60 degree weather so I decided to play hooky and left work after a half day. Oscar got a good cleaning and shed the winter gear for the afternoon:

    My lift sure makes it easy to ditch the top for a few hours:

    Unfortunately the chance or snow returns on Wednesday, 90% chance of 1” to 3” with a high of 37 degrees.

    Yeah, it looks the same here in Detroit. Winters last breathe before summer gets here. At least you had a day with out the top!

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
