perhaps your dealer will; trad you for a small difference of $75 to $100

Backup camera wireing

I put 2 diodes to each circuit 1 to backup wire and 1 to taillights and to power on camera. It will come on when backing and when lights are on without shorting together. I would draw a diagram but i cant figure how on this post.

I'd recommend that you mount it below the top light rather than above. I read that the light from the running light would wash out the camera if the camera is mounted above the light. My mount is below from the factory.

I have the Garmin RV GPS that came with a camera. I just made 2 separate power points and mounted them under the rear bumper. One is an always on power that is connected to one of my upfitter switches and the other is connected to my reverse lights. When not hooked up to the trailer I just have the camera clipped to my plate with the reverse power hooked up. When the trailer is connected I just mount the camera on the back of the trailer, I have an extension already ran underneath the trailer, and have it hooked up to the upfitter switch power. That way I can monitor behind me anytime I like or have the GPS display up. Works very well and takes all of 15 seconds to swap out.
