New 6.7 owner!

Well, I've converted over. I'm a Master Tech for Toyota. Traded in my 2011 tundra 5.7 crew max. Tundra just did not cut it for me. Got me a used 2012 6.7 F350 w/ 27k miles. brought it home and noticed a leaking radiator next morning. now the rear view mirror back up cam has a loose connection where camera is in-op (sometimes). wiggle connection and good to go. is it normal for the camera to stay on when put in drive after backing out of a driveway for a couple seconds or does it just go off after a certain mph.... Hopefully this truck does not experience all the problems i've been reading about... any info about this truck will be greatly appreciated....

My truck is 2008 with the camera, and it does stay on for maybe a split second when I go foward. Sometimes I don't even notice when it turns off anymore, I've had the truck so long lol

Ha, I know on toyotas it has the power and ground. but the actual screen is powered by the reverse light signal then there are 4 audio / visual wires and as soon as shifter is taken out of reverse it goes off. i am taking the truck in for the coolant leak tomorrow and would like to know the camera situation before i bring it up

another member with a 6.7 should see your intro thread pretty soon. They should have a better idea how the camera works.

Congrats on the new truck, you are going to love it. Glad to see someone traded their tundra for a real truck. I have some friends w tundras I always give them a hard time, tell them to buy a real truck lol. Yeah my camera stays on for like a sec or to in drive then turns off.

well the tundra has big issues just like any other brand out there. i've seen more knocking motors, leaking oil, check engine lights for cam gears or evap system. i do miss the back seat folding flat only bc my lab gets the whole back seat to herself. tundra is a good truck when it is not towing a trailer and the turning radius is ridiculous!
