About the Crux CCH-01W

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 170-degree wide view and excellent visibility for night driving.

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.

Highlights:

  • waterproof CCD camera with 19-1/2' video extension cable
  • works with any aftermarket touchscreen radio with a composite video input
  • NTSC/PAL wide-angle rear view camera compatible with select Jeep Wrangler vehicles
  • resolution: 420 TV lines
  • pixels: 510 x 582
  • 170° wide viewing angle
  • 0.4 Lux minimum for night driving
  • warranty: 1 year
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee
  • MFR # CCH-01W

What's in the box:

  • Rear view camera with lamp housing (attached 19" power/signal cable)
  • 47" Power/ground cable
  • 19.5' Signal cable

Great option for an easy install

Crutchfield customer from Natick, MA on 7/19/2019

2016 Jeep Wrangler

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I bought this camera after checking many options for an install that didn't allow a rear view camera to be mounted inside the center spare tire (the rim didn't have a generous enough opening for an unobstructed view) and I couldn't drill into my rear number without major problems. I was initially concerned about the off-center position of the camera in the license plate location. However, the camera has a nice and wide enough angle of view and the guidelines are, while not 100% correct, a more good enough orientation when you're backing in or out of tight spots. Image quality is more than decent on Pioneer aftermarket receiver. Install was very easy and I don't say this lightly. I highly recommend this camera for everybody who has similar install problems to overcome.

Pros: Easy install, fair price, good image quality

Cons: Off-center position if the camera (which I honestly believe is of no practical relevance)

A great option at the price

Crutchfield customer from Salt Lake Cty, UT on 6/23/2019

2015 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Camera gives a great picture and makes backing my JK super easy. Yes, it's off center, but if you ever mount gear, fuel, or other gear on your spare tire, this is a great solution. I use my mirrors to back into parking stalls; this is great to see tricycles or boulders anywhere behind my jeep. NOTE: With my automatic transmission, I didn't need to hook up the reverse wire from my Sony XAV-AX1000. I just tapped power from the left reverse light, and the Sony switches instantly to the camera (no lag even when the Sony is booting) whenever I shift into reverse. You might need to connect the reverse wire in cases where you want to look out the pack (towing?) when not in reverse. But let's face it, the off-center mount is not the right solution for hitching up a trailer.

Pros: Price is right; great picture; good field of view even though off center; easy install once you know how; easy connectivity in my Jeep and great interoperation at least with my head unit.

Cons: The install instructions could be a lot more specific, given this is basically going in a single kind of vehicle. BUT I found a great install video on YouTube (thanks Provo Beast). T-taps are cheap, but they should put a few in the package and tell you how to use them.

Inconspicuous little camera. The center real estate in spare tire on my 2017 Rubicon Recon was taken by the center brake light. Wide angle view projected on factory navigation unit 430N. I am very satisfied with my low investment to get this extra measure of safety. Major cost was for dealership to enable camera. Along with low cost full tech support at a local big box retailer paid for installation.

I know the instructions are pretty bad, but this is super easy to install. Just solder the red and black to the reverse light bulb positive and ground, run the video cable to radio and done. My Jeep finally has reverse camera. Took about an hour when soldering connections and doing the install the right way, simple.

Pros: Perfect fit and super clear camera

Cons: Terrible instructions

Ian from Clinton, PA on 5/4/2018

2018 Jeep Wrangler (JK)

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Worked fine for installation of a Kenwood stereo into a 2018 Wrangler JK. Instructions could be better, as they are a PDF file and you need either a tablet or color printer to have them on hand while installing to the radio harness. You really need to see the colors as you splice wires. Several wires were not identified in the instructions, and required Google-fu to figure out that you should just cap them off and not use.

I put this on a 2015 jeep wrangler. It is offset to the driver side which makes the two guidelines on usable for gauging side to side. However the guide does function nicely for distance ( green =2', yellow =1') the camera is nice and clear with no issues for me at night. It was very easy to install and the fixed angle and lens perspective are good. Overall im very happy and can now backup confident of whats in my blindspot.

Pros: Resolution Installation Distance indication

Cons: none

Fairly Easy install. Make sure you ground to bare metal or you will have issues. Decent night picture. Keep in mind the camera is off center so you have to compensate for that. Overall a great value.

Ty from Virgin Islands on 1/17/2016

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Great little camera. I wired it to my Kenwood Excelon reciever. Good picture. Not as easy to install as everyone says. it does come with 19' of wire which is a perfect length however my 2015 wrangler rubicon unlimited is longer than you think. Running that length is not fun. Make sure you run the wire through the license plate light hole not the tail light opening other wise you will have to pull it all the way back through from the radio.and snake it through again. That stunk. I have an over sized atlas bumper with tire carrier so you cant see the pasanger side of the jeep part of the road for at least 8 foot from the bumper. The driver side is' as clear as day though. which is awesome. You do have a passenger side mirror so who cares. At night it is a little dim with factory tail lights. I have Rigid 350 watt reverse spot lights so it wasn't a problem for me. all in all for the bucks you can you can't beat it. it would be really cool if they would come up with dual cameras for both sides. That would be kick butt.

Pros: poor sight of the passenger side of the jeep with any king of oversize tire carrier. Should offer a camera for both sides.

Cons: Great picture. Very inexpensive and fairly easy to wire especially if you already have a head unit that is set up for one.

Unsafe

CaryV from DFW Area, TX on 8/20/2015

2012 Jeep Wrangler

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I strongly recommend not purchasing this camera kit, purpose-built for Jeep Wrangler 2007+. The location of the camera, in the license plate housing beneath the left-hand tail light, creates a blind spot on the right-hand rear of the vehicle. Also the camera projects lane grid lines that don't correspond to the edges of the vehicle. These issues combine to burden the driver with extra workload to interpret what the camera's picture means, degrading vehicle safety.

Pros: Camera transmits a nice picture with sharp grid lines; it would be good if mounted on vehicle centerline.

Cons: Because of where the camera is mounted, there is a critical blind spot behind the right-hand side of the vehicle. Lane-guiding grid lines don't align with the edges of the vehicle. These two problems result in inconvenient false positives (telling you you're going to hit something when you're not) and dangerous false negatives (telling you you're clear when you're not). At the end of the day, your Jeep is safer without this camera than with it.

Crutchfield response on 8/26/2015
Because of the Wrangler's design and utility, it's difficult to find an ideal place to mount a camera where it is fairly protected and out of the way. While the placement is certainly side-biased, it still enhances the drivers awareness of what is behind the vehicle. Like many safety products, this is an additional view, and should not be solely relied on. Also, keep in mind the parking lines in the display are optional, and can be defeated during the camera installation.

Very seldom to you find something that fits right, plugs in to other components easily and is cost effective. It replaced my stock license plate light, hooked into the electrical system easily and then plugged into my Kenwood head with no problems. The picture is clear, really helps to see what is behind me (and you know you can't see anything out the back of a Wrangler). Great value!

Pros: Easy to install, works as promised, cost effective

Cons: None that I can find

Product Research

Features

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.

Specifications:

  • Resolution: 420 TV lines
  • Pixels: 510 x 582

It is plastic, just like the rest of the housing, but it snaps in well, and the camera is tucked in pretty well.

It will plug in, standard wiring, ground and 12v reverse or wire to acc. Video RCA (yellow) plugs into pioneer Bcam input
[ Tim  Jun 04, 2019 ]
A
I did not need any adapters. As you would expect the camera is on the side of the Jeep, so the view is a little off when backing. I turned the lines off.
[ Michael  Jun 04, 2019 ]
A
It should. It has a regular rca connection ie: the yellow connector so as long as your head unit has a reverse camera hook up you should be fine. I used mine on a pioneer head unit as well

Q
Will this automatically come on the indash video screen when the jeep is put into reverse?

Yes, as long as it is hooked up to the receiver correctly.
[ Chris  Dec 20, 2017 ]
A
I am using an alpine head unit in my Jeep with this camera. Yes it comes on automatically when put into reverse and should be able to be hooked up the same way on the stock unit. It's a good clear camera, but being offset is a pain. I read previous bad reviews about it being offset, but I did not think it would bother me that bad. The other issue is that it will come a little loose from the license plate fixture that it plugs into when bumped, such as after a wash.
