Nevermind, I figured it out. for those of you that would like to do this, ill make it easy for you. the flat harness that has 6 pins that comes out of the bottom of the tailgate, cut the harness off.(1) Purple wire goes to power (reverse light wire which is green coming off the reverse bulb) (2) white and green wire goes to video+ (take a female RCA wire the inside wire is + outside is-), (3)Brwon wire goes to video-. (4) black and white wire goes to ground (5) plug the RCA video wire coming off your aftermarket head unit thats plugged into the R. camera slot, and plug it into the RCA female end you just wired in and enjoy

I hope this helps someone, all I can find online is harness's with different colors, people trying to run the mirror camera, or diagrams that do not show this. It seems people try to make this as difficult as possible, when its very simple

Its a witson, I like it because it has a factory look, uses your existing steering wheel controls, has bluetooth, nav, 6 disc in dash changer, plays dvd's while driving, you can access nav while driving, back up camera, internet factory sub works......... has all the amenity's of the stock headunit, and all the amenity's of an aftermarket kenwood or pioneer
