Adding cap need new backup camera idea

I'm adding a ARE cap with barn doors so will remove tailgate with camera. What's my best option to install another camera and wire it into the existing connector where tailgate was. Are there license plate cameras that readily connect to the existing connector? 2013 f250
Thanks

If it was me, I would use the camera you already have and retrofit it into the new cap/doors.

Agreed. This would make it super easy, and retain stock configurstion, no splicing wires ECT. Just remove the tailgate skin (a few bolts) that will give you access to the camera and wiring. Basically just relocate the camera and your done.

Thanks all. The camera is in the ford emblem and I wasn't sure if I could pull it out or off of the emblem to remount. I would remount the whole emblem somewhere like on one of the barn doors but that would look strange and not centered.

If its not removable you can always buy another camera and mount it to your liking
