How to Relocate the Tailgate Backup Camera on a RAM Truck 2500-5500

Adding aftermarket equipment to the rear of your RAM Truck 2500-5500, whether it's a swing-out tire carrier, a camper shell, fifth-wheel towing, or a service body that replaces the bed altogether, often times results in the loss of your OE backup camera functionality because the camera mounted in the tailgate handle is either blocked or has been removed completely. Rostra Accessories offers a complete line of interface harnesses and aftermarket cameras for the 2010-2019 RAM that plug directly into the connector on the underside of the truck near the rear bumper which allows you to keep this important safety feature while often using a camera that's superior in functionality to the OE device.

Please note that the cameras listed below are for analog backup camera systems only. For vehicles equipped with LVDS cameras, including the RAM 360-degree surround-view camera system, click here.
