Question 2008 Tailgate Back up camera hooked up to aftermarket double din head unit? *KENWOOD*

Has anyone ever hooked up the back up camera on an 2008 tailgate to an aftermarket head unit in the 6.0?

I have a Kenwood DNX7140 w/ back up camera capability, and i just acquired a 2008-2010 tailgate for my truck with the old mans step and back up camera in the handle. It still has the harness on it, and i was wondering if i cut the harness and spliced it with a RCA cable or something and fed it up to my head unit would that work? Has anyone tried this?

Found it should be 5 wires
white/brown Switched 12 volt
black Ground
white/green Video +
brown/violet Video -
black/white Not used
to hook up video wires you cut on end of an RCA cable of and leave about 6" of wire out of the plug. Stip the wire(there will be an inner and outer wire)
hook video + to the inner wire and video - outer wire then run to you aux or camera input on your head unit
