Our take on the Crux CFD-15KM

The Crux CFD-15KM package hides a powerful backup camera in a replacement tailgate handle, so that you can access rear view video without compromising the rugged appeal of your Ford truck.

The Crux CFD-15KM package hides a powerful backup camera in a replacement tailgate handle, so that you can access rear view video without compromising the rugged appeal of your Ford truck.

The CFD-15KM also incorporates your existing factory LED light in the handle frame so you can keep that same convenient feature you loved when you drove off the lot. An included 26-foot cable connects to the back of an aftermarket radio or screen with a composite video input. Once installed, you'll see a generous, well-lit picture of what's behind you on your display, with a 170-degree wide view and excellent visibility for night driving.

Features

Ford F-150 Tailgate Handle Replacement Camera: This rear-view camera from Crux is specifically designed for select 2015-up Ford F-150 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. The CFD-15KL rear-view camera replaces your truck's tailgate handle assembly. With the Crux CFD-15KL Ford F-150 rear-view camera installed, you'll be able to view what's behind you on your in-dash aftermarket receiver's video monitor when you put your truck in reverse.

Note: This 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.

Image Sensor & Lens: The Crux CFD-15KL rear-view camera features a CMOS image sensor that offers 480 lines of resolution. The bright f/1.8 lens has 170° (horizontal) x 90° (vertical) viewing angle. The minimum illumination is 0.2 Lux.

Dynamic Park Assist Lines: The  rear-view camera will display park assist lines on your connected monitor to aid you in backing up into a parking spot. A built-in gyro-sensor allows the park assist lines to dynamically curve as you steer and angle your vehicle.  There are two vertical lines which help you judge the left and right edges of the parking space and your vehicle. There are also 3 color-coded horizontal lines that are used to distinguish how close you are getting to the end of the parking spot - Green (Clear), Yellow (Getting Close), Red (Very Close).

Note: The dynamic park assist lines are turned on and active by default. If you prefer to turn off the dynamic park assist lines, you will need to cut the small, thin white wire loop on the the attached power/video cable of the rear-view camera.

Connections: The rear-view camera features an attached 4' power/video harness which plugs into the included extension harness that features a 26' video cable and 3' power/ground wires. At the end of the video cable is a male RCA composite video plug, which connects to the composite, rear-view camera input of your aftermarket head unit. The power (red) & ground (black) wires will need to be hardwired. 12V power can be obtained from your vehicle's reverse light circuit or from the reverse gear wire of your aftermarket stereo (if applicable).

Waterproof Housing: The Crux CFD-15KL Ford F-150 tailgate handle replacement camera features an IP67 waterproof housing.
