Specially designed for your Wrangler
If you're looking for a back-up camera for your 2007-up Jeep Wrangler with an aftermarket touchscreen radio, Crux has what you need. This camera installs on your Wrangler's license plate bracket, so that you don't have to compromise the rugged appeal of your Jeep. Crux includes a cable that connects to the back of an aftermarket radio with a composite video input. Once installed, you'll see a generous, well-lit picture of what's behind you on your aftermarket radio's video display, with a 120-degree wide view and excellent visibility for night driving.
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.
Pro tip: This camera mounts on the driver's side, making it off-center. We recommend turning off the parking lines at installation for best results.
Note: A rear-view camera provides an additional view when reversing your vehicle. It is intended to be used in conjuction with your rear- and side-view mirrors to give a fuller picture of what's behind you. It is not intended as a replacement for your mirrors.

More details on the Crux CCH-01W
Jeep Wrangler Rear-View Camera: The Crux CCH-01W rear-view camera is specifically designed for 2007-up Jeep Wranglers with an aftermarket in-dash multimedia or navigation receiver installed. Your aftermarket receiver must feature an integrated video monitor and a composite video camera input, plus reverse wire output. Now you'll be able to view what's behind you on your in-dash receiver's video monitor when you put your vehicle in reverse.
Note: The CCH-01W rear-view camera 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.
Mounting: The Crux CCH-01W mounts to your 2007-up Jeep Wrangler's license plate. The rear-view camera is attached to a plastic lamp housing which replaces the factory lamp housing on your Jeep Wrangler's license plate. The lamp and rear-view camera housing is waterproof.
Connections: The CCH-01W includes a 19.5' signal cable which plugs into the CCH-01W rear-view camera's attached 19" power/signal cable and your in-dash aftermarket multimedia or navigation receiver's camera input. There is also a 47" power/ground cable which plugs into the rear-view camera's 19" power/signal cable and hardwired to power and ground of your vehicle. In addition, the 19.5' signal cable also features a reverse wire that hardwires to your aftermarket head unit's reverse wire output and hardwires to your vehicle's backup-light circuit.
