I can understand electronic back-up systems/cameras on large vehicles such as those Grayhound bus sized motor homes, but why do you need one on a vehicle as small as a two door Wrangler?
I can understand why people would question this but for me, with it getting dark earlier, tinted windows, highback seat, coats, not being as vigilant as I should be (everytime) when using my head swivel device, its a feature I'd like to have.
Not to be morbid or over the top, but the real push for one is with a friend of a friend. Instead of it being mommy's little Lexus, it was mommy's little baby. She killed her baby. I'm a little freaked out. It's obvious how this could have been avoided but mommy's human as we all are and it was a trajic accident. Trajic accidents can happen to ANYBODY.
I know I'm not going to be as vigilant as I should be everytime because I too am a human and this would be a nice feature to have. My wife has one on her minivan and I really like it. My concern is wether or not the sensors would pick up the spare tire that hangs over the rear bumper by ten inches.
