Edited for simplicity.

How my Pioneer unit works, when the camera comes on, the screen switches to the camera view. The camera is powered by the backup light circuit.

My switch just controls which camera gets power.

The camera's video feeds just go into a simple "Y" RCA connecter, then to the head unit.



Three position rocker switch (two would have worked) sends power to either the upper or lower camera.

Camera switch is just 12v, makes the head unit think I'm in reverse when I'm not.


(A good question might be, don't your backup lights come on when you use the switch? No. But I don't remember why not.
Isolated it from the backup circiute using a multi pole switch maybe? I't been several years now. lol)

What did I do on my YJ today? I tore the belt loop off a new pair of pants. I think I officially have more like that than not.


I bought a Spderwebshade mesh "top". I don't think I like it. For one I'm a bit disappointed how far away the shade is from the side bars. Bigger gaps than I expected. But mostly it's a bit low. Or I'm too high more accurately. I'm 6'4", and not tall in the legs at all, it's mostly torso. So it's a bit close to the top of my head. Not claustrophobic, but maybe feels a bit confined is a better description. That was a concern I had when I was deciding between them and another brand that wraps over the top like most bikinis. It would have been higher and no gaps, I guess I chose wrong. Maybe I'll get used to it.

A Question for the Group.

How low can you go, when airing down on non-bead lock rims?

I am sure this is not an exact science, tire size, brand, rim width, etc can all play a part. Just trying to get a general idea of a safe PSI to run when on the trails.

In the past when I was a lot younger and "less informed" I would air down till the tires looked right, never used a gauge and then would drive to the nearest gas station with air before driving home.

Thanks in advance..

I think it will depend a lot on the bead retention of the rim. I’ve had some rims (aluminum) that had a retention bead machined in the inside and some steely’s and aluminum’s that didn’t. I think the one with the bead would do better at lower psi. That said I stayed around 10psi and never had a problem. I think now I might go as low as 7-8psi and see how it does.
I have double bead locks now and I think I’m going to try 4-5 psi next time I go out.

I’d be curious to see how you do a double din. It think most people will use an IPad and custom mount to use as a screen for nav,Sent from my iPhone using iCrapNtalk
Usedter be 10” mini-plug input color lcd monitors on amazone for $35 or so. So you don’t need a din chassis or double din for a barkup cam monitor and they were like 8mm thick. Stick em anywheres. Plus a switch in-line of the reverse-lights circuit and you can use it driving forwards.

Running black steel wheels on my YJ. Maybe I will go down to 15psi and see how it rides on the trails.

15psi vs 33psi should be a huge difference

Depends on your tires. I was able to air my 31" Hercules Trail Diggers and the 31" Duratraks down to about 5 PSI pretty regularly. I always took it easy on the gas, especially if I was on a hard surface. I did spin a tire on the rim a couple of times, but it didn't hurt anything or break the bead.

I am not so sure about the 33" tires though. I go down to 10PSI with them. I bet I could go to 7PSI because the sidewalls are stiff enough, but I haven't tried it yet.

Ya I bet you could go down to 10psi no problem. It probable would be a good experiment on your next trip to run a trail at 15psi and if its short enough go back and 10-8psi and run it again.

A note to Remember, the standard air pressure gauge you get from your parts stores are designed to work accurately between 30-80psi. Below 30psi the accuracy goes down with every degree. Your best tool is a digital one thatís accurate +|- 1psi even at high and low pressures

A good point. I used to use a digital gauge, but I got tired of the battery being dead every time I used it.

I use a low-pressure gauge that can read 1 PSI. It only goes up to 40 PSI if I remember correctly.

I ran BFG kevlars on 8" rims for 7-8 years at 10psi or less and popped a bead maybe once or twice.

As many have said... 10 psi should be reasonably safe, but there are many variables. I ran 10 on my 35" Coopers without issue. I am currently running 8 in the front and 6 in the rear with my 40" Nittos, both on steel wheels. Set them at 10 and watch how they work. Every Jeep is different.

I ran 12psi in my 35x12.5 KM2s on a 15x8 rim and never had any issues. Now I run 3psi in my 39.5x13.5 iroks on a 16.5x9 double bead lock
