Wanted to thank the original poster, and to Keith for setting up this very useful forum.
I purchased a 2013 Unlimited Sahara with body matching hardtop when my 2002 Nissan Pathfinder needed more repairs than I was willing to make (although she served me many useful miles with hardly any expense.) On a whim I dropped by the Jeep dealer to see what was up with the 4-door Wranglers and needless to say it was love at first sight.
While I have many plans for upgrades, the first one was for safety and that was I wanted to add a Backup and Forward (slow creep) cams to keep my vision optimal when navigating the driveway / garage and any off road trouble I may find myself it. I purchased the MyGIG Lockpick online from a re-seller who offered it for half the price as the maker (what a sweet deal) and then went to CarToys to get an estimate to complete the installs.
After fainting from the $600 quote, I searched the inter webs and found this article - how very helpful! All the tools needed, step by step directions. Very nice.
So I took the first weekend (about three hours) to install the front and rear cameras, and run the cables up to the dash. While I was under the covers, I also installed a "Power Acoustik DTV-Mhu Universal Mobile Atsc-Mh Digital TV Receiver Module" in there as well, ran and cleaned up everything and waited for the following weekend.
This weekend I completed the install. Let me just say that this site inspired me to do the work myself - and saved me a fortune. Installing the MyGIG Lockpick was a simple. After I ran some tests, I buttoned up the dash and now have auto-reverse cam. And the front cam comes on when the speed slows below 7mph (which will be VERY useful off road - I can see near-ground level while I creep around.)
And when I am going to different locations or waiting for meetings, I can enjoy television in the Jeep. Nicely, the Atsc-Mh digital standard is optimized for mobile transmission, meaning you can install back seat screens and allow the kiddos to watch live TV (or patch DVD video from the DVD player, your iPod/iPhone or whatever - to the front and or backseats.) This will make long trips a breeze.
I'm going to wait to get past the expense of Christmas and then next on my list will be adding a winch plate and a Winch to the factory bumper.
Thanks to everyone on this forum; it's already been a very productive and helpful site and I hope I can contribute as my projects progress.
ps. I uploaded what the front cam looks like when driving here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ms43i...ature=youtu.be
