Back up camera

I don't know if anyone else has this problem or not, for me the F250 Super Duty is quite long and I have a problem backing it up in tight places. I am thinking a back up camera would be of great help.

Has anyone installed a back up camera in their F250's? If you did, please share some thoughts, experiences.

Thanks

I installed a savv system. SAVV Mobile Multimedia You can find them on ebay for a couple hundred bucks. Uses your rearview mirror... it is transparent when it is off, so you can see behind you.

I have one for hooking up my trailer when I'm by myself. workes great for backing up into places where I can get as close as possible so the front end isn't sticking out.

Mine was $80 audiovox unit from a department store. Best $80 I've spent since having my wife back me up to the trailer has almost caused our divorce a few times

They sure are worth it. All you have to do is back into one hood and it pays for itself..

Heck, I already backed up into my neighbor's Ford SUV last week. My liability insurance is out of 3K paying for the damage.

The good thing though, my truck sustained no damage....

I guess my Super Duty is the real Ford. His is the wannabe.....

Sounds like I better get onetoo!
I'm tired of her backing me up-then smashing the licence plate,and then she say's --ok--pull up a little bit--almost there!!
Could save me alot of money on divorce too!
Not to mention all the bent parts!
