    I used a camera from coolint that I popped into the tailgate handle. Also used a coolint rearview mirror. The quality was better than others of the style that I have installed. The mirror is no longer available, but the camera is. Cheap alternative to replacing the oem radio for a double din touchscreen.

    If you have a factory screen, one of the Rostra plug and play kits may work for you

    new HU and aftermarket camera is the best solution imo. I had the rear view mirror ones and it sucked.

    Headunit means the radio in your dash. It's the head unit that you control and delivers audio out to speakers.

    Nice headunit is at least $500 + wiring harness + install (most people can handle this themselves). My rearview mirror + camera cost $120. A double din touchscreen headunit is nicer, but you pay for it.
