    I have a 2010 CM SR5 2wd
    - stock stereo
    - no JBL speakers

    I’m looking at backup camera options.
    I just did a quick search and saw I could spend $100-$150, I have the theory “if I’m gonna do this I might as well ______”

    Approx how much would I spend if I did a new radio? I don’t want to spend $1000, my budget would be $250-350. Is this even doable?

    I have a cheap Boss Audio double din for a
    Android Auto ($250) and bought one of these cameras off Amazon. Drilled a hole into the tail gate handle to imitate OE location. The angle is a bit low but it works.

    Just a tad over $300 in total to my door.

    I did something similar to this. I ordered the camera below I saw that another member used. Came with a hole saw, just drilled a hole in the factory tailgate handle to mount. I also ordered a cheap rear view mirror monitor that clips onto the mirror. It'll work for now until I get a new head unit.
