This Laser-Cut Aluminum rear camera mount is made proudly here in the USA. Easily attached behind your OEM spare, this camera mount kit INCLUDES a rear view camera to allow you to experience the convenience and safety of a back-up camera system in your Jeep Wrangler JK. (Check my other listing if you need just the mounting bracket)
The camera will work with all Factory Jeep head units (radios) that have the video display / navigation screen when paired with the proper interface module or cable (sold separately).
If you need a rear camera interface module/cable those are available here on EBay from several sellers and cost around $50.00.
If you have an Aftermarket video screen or an aftermarket head unit in your Jeep please do your research on if a backup camera will work and what kind of interface module or cable you will need.
This is designed to work with all Jeep OEM wheels that are mounted on the factory spare tire mount. It may also work with some aftermarket wheels. You are responsible for fitment with aftermarket wheels or custom set ups. If you have the 2017 Wrangler Smokey Mountain edition wheels - this mount will require minor modification to work with those particular wheels.
Simply remove your spare tire, place the mount on the spare tire bracket, replace your spare - indexing the wheel so that the camera can see out between the spokes - tighten up your lug nuts to the recommended torque, and you are ready to hook up the camera.
This mount - unlike others - is adjustable. The top section may be bent to increase or decrease the angle of view, and the plastic pipe may be adjusted to the desired depth using the the two retaining rings. This mount may also be installed upside down.
No need to drill any holes in your Jeep, and it can be transferred easily to another Wrangler when it's time to trade in. All bracket materials are the highest quality stainless steel and aluminum sourced here in the USA.
Your reverse camera mount will arrive unpainted. The top section that shows through the spare may be easily painted low-gloss black to make it virtually disappear behind your spare tire. It is recommended that you trial fit your mount and make any adjustments to it prior to painting and installing the camera.
A small amount of clear RTV silicone adhesive may be applied around the camera body when installing in the mount to insure a watertight seal. Be certain to have the camera properly oriented on the mount before securing it with the adhesive. (RTV Silicone adhesive is not included but is inexpensive and available at any hardware store)
Professional installation is recommended. There may be additional parts that you will need in order to complete a rear camera installation.
This listing is for the mount and camera . You will receive only what is pictured. Please do your research to determine if this part will work with your application prior to purchase. A rear camera should never be used as the only method to determine your vehicles surroundings.
