About the Crux CDR-02
Specially designed for your Ram
If you're looking for a backup camera for the aftermarket radio in your 2009-up Ram truck, Crux has what you need. This CDR-02 camera is cleverly hidden in a replacement working handle frame, so that you can mount your backup camera without compromising the rugged appeal of your Ram. Crux includes a cable that connects to the back of any aftermarket radio with a composite video input. Once installed, you'll see a generous, well-lit picture of what's behind you on your Ram radio's display, with a 120-degree wide view and excellent visibility for night driving.

More details on the Crux CDR-02
Sightline Series Rear-View Camera: The Sightline series CDR-02 rear-view camera by Crux is specifically designed for select Dodge Ram trucks 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. 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 CDR-02 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.
Vehicle Compatibility: The Sightline series CDR-02 rear-view camera is compatible with the following 2009-2013 Dodge Ram trucks (as of 8/14/14).
Note: Please consult the Crutchfield Car Selector for your vehicle's compatibility.
Replacement Handle Assembly: The CDR-02 includes a custom-designed mounting bracket and handle assembly which replaces the factory handle of your truck's tailgate. First you will need to remove the factory handle from the tailgate and then install the CDR-02 camera/handle assembly in place of it. You will also need to drill an 18.5mm (5/8") hole in your truck's tailgate to mount the CDR-02's rear-view camera within the handle assembly and to route the power/signal cable to the front of the vehicle.
Power & Signal Connections: The CDR-02 includes a 19.5' signal cable which plugs into the rear-view camera's attached 20" power/signal cable and your in-dash aftermarket multimedia or navigation receiver's camera input. There is also a 45" power/ground cable which plugs into the rear-view camera's 20" power/signal cable and hardwired to power and ground of your vehicle. In addition, the 19.5' signal cable also features power/ground wires that hardwire to your vehicle's wiring.
