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.
