Crux RVCCH-75RC Backup Camera System reviews
The product works as promised. The plastic on the tailgate handle is cheaper than the factory handle, but it should work fine if you are careful. The directions for taking the dash apart were spot on, but the directions for hooking the harnesses up to the radio were extremely vague. Technical support was not helpful at all. The tech was unfamiliar with the product and his only advice led to a smoking connection. If directions were available it would have saved me considerable time as the process was pretty easy once I figured out where everything went. The product was about $100 less than competitors, so overall I'm happy, but the installation was pretty frustrating.
Pros: Works as promised. Good directions for taking apart the dash Less expensive than competitors
Cons: Tech support was worse than having none Directions for installation vague Tailgate handle not as good as original

More details on the Crux RVCCH-75RC Backup Camera System
Sightline Series Rear-View Camera System: The Sightline series RVCCH-75RC rear-view camera system by Crux has been specifically designed for select Dodge Ram trucks that are equipped with a MYGIG factory radio. Now you can use your vehicle's factory radio to see what's behind you when backing up. The RVCCH-75RC comes with an interface module and the necessary harnesses and cables to connect the rear-view camera to your vehicle's factory system.
Note: The RVCCH-75RC rear-view camera system 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 RVCCH-75RC rear-view camera system is compatible with the following Dodge Ram trucks that feature a MYGIG-style factory radio (as of 8/28/14).
Note: Incompatible in vehicles with manual transmission.
Automatic Rear-View Switching: The RVCCH-75RC features automatic rear-view switching. This means that when you place your vehicle in reverse gear, your factory radio's monitor will automatically switch over to the rear-view camera so you can see what's behind you immediately.
Park Assist Lines: The rear-view camera provides parking assist lines on the screen of your vehicle's in-dash factory radio. These parking lines are there to assist you when backing up into a parking space. 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 - Yellow (Clear), Purple (Getting Close), Red (Very Close).
AV Input/Output: The RVCCH-75RC also provides composite video/stereo RCA input and output for your vehicle's MYGIG system.
Replacement Handle Assembly: The RVCCH-75RC's rear-view camera flush mounts in the included bracket/handle assembly. This custom-designed mounting bracket and handle assembly 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 bracket/handle assembly in place of it. You'll also need to drill a 18.5mm (5/8") hole behind the rear-view camera in order to route the wires and cables.
Power/Ground & Signal Connections: The rear-view camera features an attached 19" power/signal cable which plugs into the included 20' composite video cable and the 46" power/ground cable. The composite video cable then plugs into the include vehicle harness. The vehicle harness plugs into the RVCCH-75RC's interface module and your vehicle's factory radio.
