A rear-view or backup camera is a great way to enhance the safety in your 2007-up Wrangler, but Jeeps are different from most vehicles and present some mounting challenges. Fortunately, Crux and Brandmotion each make a backup camera designed to fit your Jeep.
There are two good places on the back of these Jeeps to mount a camera. First is behind the spare tire, peeking out through the spokes. That's where the Brandmotion camera mounts, and it's adjustable to see through most aftermarket wheels. This is the most central location, and has the advantage of being up high for an all-encompassing view. Check it out in the short video below.
But what if you have a wheel cover? That's where the Crux system comes in. It's mounted on the license plate, which is on the far left side of the Jeep. The camera sees past the spare tire and gives you a wide, if slightly offset view. We tested it out and found the view clear, sharp, and plenty wide. You can see more about it in the video below.
If you have any questions about adding a rear-view camera to your Jeep or any other vehicle, give us a call or contact us via email or chat. Our advisors will be happy to help you find the best way to add this safety feature to whatever you drive.
