    I plan to add a new head unit and backup camera to my 08 DC. Can anyone tell me where the parking and backup wires are that I will need to tap into? Also, what camera do you like? Thank you!

    Thanks. So I may not need to tie into the parking wire?

    I have not picked one out yet. Still trying to figure out what head unit and speakers to get. I picked up a JL Audio 300/4 v2 amp off of Craigslist.

    5100s all around, 295-70-18 Defenders, 1.25 Spidertrax spacers, BD reverse lights, de-badged, interior LEDs, footwell LEDs, reverse LEDs, ARE cap, front receiver hitch for cooler holder, cooler holder/rod rack, backup camera, Kenwood HU, Westin nerf bars, Husky floor liners, folding rear seats, remote battery posts, plastidip grill chrome, Powder coat bumpers.
    If you mean parking brake, which is required to be engaged for a DVD player to play, the unit should just require a ground. At least it's that way on Kenwood.
