i dont know about a back up camera, but there are back up sensors that are available. other wise i am sure there is a universal camera kit that could probably be found online.

I think this is listed as "Park Distance Sensor Kit" Part # 82208246AD, dealer installed. Refered to as: ParkSense Rear Park Assist System. Advanced system uses sound waves and audio-visual indicators to maneuver in tight spaces at parking speeds in the Compass Dealer Brochure.

I think you can get it online at some places too. Of course, it involves drilling holes in your bumper, so I'd prefer a dealer do mine.

Yup! Hole saw tool - for Park Distance Sensor Kit Installation. Part # 82208882. In the Mopar catalog the Sensor kit is $299 and the hole saw is another $20.

Actuall placement doesn't appear to be that critical as long as you get a good pattern to your blind areas. Shown here on a Patriot.

Hi,
it like's me well important, because behind the bumper are the bumper-attachments and other reinforcements. The art is it, to place the drillings between this things...



a = ?
b = ?
c = ?

Greetings,

It's interesting that you found this picture but they didn't give any dimentions. That's still more than what I found.

Oh, I see. I had originally thought that you would just feel back up behind the bumper to figure out where the holes could be drilled with out hitting any brackets. I'm still looking , but the common complaint is that the instructions do not include the hole locations. This kit is listed for MANY different DC products.

Maybe these pictures will help. I did not find a good way to transfer the measurements for hole locations from inside to outside. I would drill a pilot hole using a 90 degree drill and go from the inside outer edge threw the recessed center portion of the bumper brace and measure that for how far down to drill. Then locate the remaining holes according to that. The only brackets that would be in the way are located near the ends for bumper attachment. Hope this helps. Also pictured are 1 of the 2 little push pin fasteners that hold the lower edge of the fascia in place.
