Installing a reversing camera

I'm going to install a reversing camera that I want to plug in to the back of the radio as it supports this. What is the best route to track the wire from the head unit to the back of the truck?

Thanks

Mike

Mike, did you purchase the truck or the radio in the UK? Wich is the US version?

Alot of current backup cameras are offered in "wireless", as in, they have an adapter for the radio and a wireless camera. If you are going full wired version you need to run the leads from the camera to the head unit. You can do this fairly safely along the bottom of the truck following currentfactory wires that run from the rear underside to the front firewall area as well as fuel lines/transmission lines. you should cover them with wire loom and zip tie it asside current wiring as it is already a safe path from heat and moving objects.
