Back up camera

Has anyone install an aftermarket back up camera system on their SD ?

I'd like to get recommendations if you did that for your SD. I'd think a wireless system is probably best.

I dont know about what camera to get. I want to add one to my 5er soon. I would advise against wireless. Being a computer guy, let me tell you, anything without a wire is less reliable and should be avoided if possible! I HATE wireless networking! Never have issues with cat5, but spend half my life dealing with stupid waps!

Just a basic 01 F350 CCLB SRW -Good from a far but far from good

Sometimes the work put in is worth it. Trust me, I know. when we spend 3 days pulling cable in a building and you plug in and everything works till they move out. SOOO much better then dealing with a cell phone in the building that takes down the wireless
