I'm looking to get a backup camera. Been looking on ebay but there so many choices. So looking for any help. Want to get a good system that you guys have had good luck with thanks. I'm going to be installing the Kenwood 9960 head you .
I just recently had a Pioneer ND-BC5 installed on my 07 H3 that I got off of Ebay for $140. It's not the cheapest camera but the quality is the best. It gives me a great picture and a great field of vision. Mine was mounted near my license plate and I can't say enough about how much I like it.
It's a flush mount camera so it doesn't stick out at all. They provided a hole saw so you just drill into the plastic on the bumper above the hitch and it mounts in that hole. I bought a Pioneer AVH-P4300DVD head unit that has a backup camera input so that is how I view the output.
Looks good. I was going to mount mine there but the metal behind the plastic bumper cover was curved which made me think twice. Did you drill a hole through the metal bumper or did you do something else?
I drilled through both the plastic and metal bumper. Made a spacer block to fill in the curve so the lock ring on the camera fit flat. Could have probably gone higher but I wanted to be able to have a little more gap to tighten the lock ring instead of being butted up against the top side of the metal bumper.
It overlaps the plastic trim a little but I'm over it, as long as it works as advertised.
