Add a backup cam and keep your radio
Brandmotion's SUTV-8847 rear-view camera integrates nicely into the rugged design of your Jeep Wrangler and displays everything it sees on the factory 6.1" touchscreen radio. The camera's wide view and visibility for night driving make it a must-have for the hard-drivin' Wrangler owner. Use it for off-road reversing when you need to watch out for stumps and stuff, or install this cam with its parking lines if you're a town & country driver.
Custom-fit for your spare
Brandmotion includes an adjustable bracket and camera head extension piece so you can mount the camera between the spokes of a wide variety of rear-mounted spare tires, including aftermarket tires. You'll also find the wiring harness needed for factory integration as well as a handy module that plugs into your Jeep's OBD-II port and reprograms the factory radio to be compatible with the camera.
Installing this camera yourself? Here's what you should know.
What does it do? Unless otherwise noted, a backup camera is only intended for use backing up your vehicle. (If you require a front-view or constant rear-view camera, check for that capability.)
What tools and supplies will I need? A panel tool, a wire cutter/stripper, a soldering iron, and a rosin-core solder with heat shrink tubing are recommended, along with whatever tools are needed to remove the radio from the dash.
How much wiring is required? Wiring instructions vary from camera to camera. Some cameras have power wiring that can only be connected near the radio. Others let you power the camera at compatible reverse lights. In all cases, the camera must be wired for power and ground, the camera's video output must be connected to the radio/monitor, and the radio/monitor must be connected to a reverse trigger in your vehicle. Some radio replacement interfaces supply a reverse trigger wire for the radio -- using that wire to power your camera will damage the interface.
Will the included video cable be long enough? You'll need to route the camera's video cable from its mounting location outside your vehicle into your vehicle's cabin and all the way to the screen in the dash. This often requires drilling a small hole in your vehicle or filing some metal and or plastic. You'll also need to estimate the length of cable needed to run from the camera to the dash, which will not be a straight shot. Each camera's cable length is listed.

More details on the Brandmotion SUTV-8847
Jeep Wrangler Camera Kit: The BrandMotion SUTV-8847 Jeep Wrangler Camera Kit allows you to add a rear-view camera to select Jeep Wranglers with a factory 6.1" display headunit. The camera kit can be used with virtually any style of Jeep Wrangler spare tire.
Note: This rear-view camera kit is meant as a back-up aid only; never solely rely on the rear-view camera when backing-up. In addition to using the rear-view camera, always look behind you to make sure everything is clear when backing up your vehicle.
Vehicle Compatibility: The BrandMotion Jeep Wrangler Camera Kit is designed specifically for 2007-2018 Jeep Wrangler JK models with a factory 6.1" display headunit.
CMOS Backup Camera: The BrandMotion Jeep Wrangler Camera Kit features a CMOS backup camera that delivers 648 x 488 lines of resolution with a wide 150° horizontal and 100˚ vertical viewing angle. The CMOS camera has a Lux rating of 0.1 for low-light conditions.
Park Assist Lines: The backup camera provides parking assist lines on the screen of your aftermarket display monitor. These parking lines are there to assist you when backing up into a parking space, and are not removable.
Weather Resistance: The rear-view camera carries an IP68 waterproof rating.
Spare Tire Mounting Bracket: The BrandMotion Jeep Wrangler Camera Kit comes with a stainless-steel spare tire mounting bracket to mount the rearview camera inside your spare tire on back of your compatible Jeep Wrangler. The spare tire mounting bracket allows you to adjust the neck up, down, left, and right to fit the camera head between the different spoke patterns on varying wheels. Also, included in the kit are two camera head extension brackets (3" & 4.25") to work with varying wheel depths. The spare tire mounting bracket is designed to work with both factory and most aftermarket wheels for the Jeep Wrangler.
Radio Interface: The rearview camera features a 22' video cable terminated in a male composite video plug. An additional RCA-to-22-pin harness is provided to adapt the 22' cable with the factory display input.
OBDII Flashing: The SUTV-8847 includes a flashing module that temporarily gets plugged into your Jeep's OBDII socket for system flashing, letting you use the camera kit along with the factory 6.1" display headunit.
Note: The OBDII flashing module is VIN locked for single-vehicle use and cannot be used to flash additional vehicles. If your factory radio is re-flashed by a dealership or replaced with another compatible factory radio, the flashing module can still be used.
