Product Research


Toyota Tacoma Tailgate Handle Replacement Camera: The Crux CTY-02T Toyota Tacoma rear-view camera is specifically designed for select 2006-2015 Toyota Tacoma 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 CTY-02T rear-view camera replaces your truck's tailgate handle assembly. With the Crux CTY-02T Toyota Tacoma 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 CTY-02T Toyota Tacoma 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.

Connections: The rear-view camera features an attached 18" power/video harness which plugs into the included extension harness that features a 26' video cable and 10' 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. The ground will need to connected to your vehicle's metal chassis.

Customer Q&A

1 question already asked

Does it hook into the electrical locking system so you can lock the tailgate from the driver's seat?

No. Camera only.
[ Todd  Apr 24, 2020 ]
The handle does not lock, so there is no electrical connection to the doors.
