    Hi, I have a 2011 Tundra double cab and want to install a backup camera. I bought this one off of Amazon. My question is does anyone know if these are hookups for easy install under the car?
    I have a really shaky video and to screenshots from that video.
    Here is the type of backup camera...https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07WR9C3M4?ref=ppx_yo2ov_dt_b_product_details

    I think that is wiring for a camera, the issue is aftermarket cameras typically require 12 volts and OEM is something like 7 volts. Found this out the hard way. Ran a dedicated power supply and it works great.

    The easiest way to get power to your backup camera is to connect to either hot wire on your reverse lights. When you go into reverse, the camera gets power from the backup lights. You still need to run the wire harness (I have the same tailgate handle) up to your radio to plug it into your head unit (aftermarket). There was a large bundle of factory wires running along the driver's side of the frame so I zip tied the camera wires every foot or so and then came up into the cab in the passenger side foot well. There is a large rubber grommet there.
