different

well i installed a back up camera for my wife, since she couldnt see the infinity g35s behind her last week.

i will eventually go back and paint the plastic black so that it will hide better.

with all the rental jeeps that run out here on the island, i had to make mine completly different.



i know the lighting sucks, but they look decent on the jeep. my first time doing decals on a vehicle so it didnt come out the best, just a few bubbles.

another 3200 miles :what?: and i can put the bb lift on :thumbsup: and shorten the front bumper. :ya: also cant forget about eventually putting the grill gaurd in as well.

Did you find a good write for the back up cam??? I would like to install a backup as well as a cam under the jeep to see the rocks when wheeling!!! I think some kind of switch would be nice to switch cams!

Thats where I put my backup camera. when I get the time I will hunt the junkyard for a old power mirror and control and make it pan/tilt

When it absolutely, positively needs to be made from random crap found in the back of my garage.

I never thought of that. Back-up camera = undercarriage camera

You should talk to SDMF about the undercarriage camera, he has been working that one out for sometime now and I think he is going to do it pretty soon. Chime in SDMF.

That's a pretty light camera, I mean, you could pick up a few servos on the cheap for it. A 555 or something to generate the PWM, and an old joystick... =)

Now that's a hot idea. Spend a little more money, could do it w/ nearly zero effort from somewhere like servocity.

I may have to steal your idea. BTW, a local shop to me has a bunch of old power mirror setups for about $10, IIRC. If you like, I could check up on them for you.
