How to Relocate the Camera in your Chevrolet or GMC Truck's Tailgate

How to Relocate the Camera in your Chevrolet or GMC Truck's Tailgate

The backup camera in the tailgate of your 2019-2021 Chevrolet or GMC Silverado, Sierra, Colorado, or Canyon truck is an important safety feature required to be installed by the manufacturer at the time of production on all new vehicles in the United States to help drivers avoid accidents. Unfortunately the addition of aftermarket equipment such as service bodies and specialty truck beds, hatchback or walk-in door bed caps, swing-out tire carriers, slide-in and pop-up campers, and even general fifth-wheel towing, often times result in the removal of a truck's tailgate and the loss of this feature.

With Rostra's LVDS single-wire tailgate camera relocation kits you no longer have to live without a backup camera when upgrading your truck!

Rostra offers three different types of backup camera relocation kits to suit installer's needs with the following features:

Camera Relocation Housing

Rostra's relocation housings are custom-designed fixtures meant to accept the original camera from your Chevrolet or GMC's tailgate. These housings mount to any flat surface with a combination of automotive-grade VHB tape and machine screws and are designed to angle the camera in such a way that it approximates the original camera view on your truck's in-dash monitor. These housings are ideal for use when the installer wants to remove the original camera from the tailgate handle and the camera will be installed in about the same position as it was when inside the tailgate handle originally and doesn't require an extension harness. View Rostra's Chevrolet and GMC Truck tailgate camera relocation housings below.

Camera Relocation Housing and Extension Harness

Rostra's relocation housings with extension harnesses include the custom relocation housing mentioned above but include a 5-meter LVDS extension harness. These kits are for use when the installer wants to remove the original camera from the tailgate handle but the camera will be installed further away from its original position in the tailgate. The housing provides a sturdy mounting point for the camera while the extension harness provides the needed length to locate the camera further away from the middle of the tailgate.

Camera Relocation Housing, Extension Harness, Original Equipment Camera

Rostra's combination relocation housing, extension harness, and original equipment backup camera kits provide the ultimate solution to camera relocation. These kits are perfect for when the installer doesn't want to bother with removing the original camera from a truck's tailgate, or for when the truck was delivered as a cab & chassis model with no backup camera. Again, the housing provides a sturdy mount for the camera while the extension harness provides the needed length to locate the camera wherever the installer wants on the back of the truck.
