    Just installed a $30 backup camera

    Just installed this $30 backup camera on my truck, all the info is the same for the Supra. Im thinking about putting one on the Supra too.... the price is right and so far it's been working really well!

    Good find! Even if I don't get a backup camera I found something here that I could've been using for years now. Add-a-circuit fuse holder!!! Wow!!! I can't count the number of times I could've used this handy-dandy tap.

    I dunno, unless your radio already has a tv screen on it i don't see the allure. We have great visibility out the back unless you add louvers or one of the weird JDM inverted hatches. For trucks they are great though, especially if you aim them at the hitch ball for super easy hook ups.

    I want it for my Grand Cherokee. It already has a nav radio with an external video input, and when I installed it I ran the cables to the cargo area.

    The ones that install up under the license plate like new cars are a lot cleaner if you already have the screen.

    I installed one on my license plate. Used the stereo screen to view. It's nice when going to car shows and having to back up in a certain spot.

    That's really what I meant when I said I need to buy one (or something) of those.

    Crutchfield has some relatively inexpensive ones, and I have a ton of "bonus points" from them for buying other A/V stuff. Even though Crutchfield tends be a little pricier than Amazon or eBay, if I turn in my points and get it for, say $5, it's a win-win!

    I already picked up a second one to use on one of my other cars. It makes things so much easier.
