These running on 12 or 24 volt? I’m spoiled with the camera on my daily driver Silverado truck and I put an alpine in my sons car with a camera that is sweet. I’m tired of not being able to more quickly hook to my boat trailer since I can’t see anything with the tailgate up. My sons alpine could support a front camera too which could be handy in the M998.

I built an overhead tray between the windshield and the B pillar, centerline of the truck. Put a 24 to 24 V converter and a fuse box. Runs the camera and display on one circuit. Another circuit runs the fan, one for a 12VDC charger and another for interior lights (I chose red les, may not have been best decision but its in there). Camera is in the center hole below the tailgate and the cables follow the body harness then go up the B pillar.

I utilized a Garmin Streetpilot 7" commercial truck GPS with an A/V input so that I would only need 1 display that serves 2 purposes in the HMMWV. I mounted it on the A pillar low in the corner of the drivers windshield so that I could glance down without my eyes leaving the road for more than a second to see everything I needed. When the truck is in reverse it displays the rear view camera and when moving forward I can either use the GPS function or the trip computer function which is where it's set most of the time. On bright days looking down to the speedometer is a black hole and you need to allow time to let your eyes adjust from the light to the dark and on the freeway that takes too long so in trip computer mode all the pertinent information is right there at a quick glance.

My camera is mounted directly above the pintle hitch to allow me to use it when connecting the trailer and still gives me plenty of rear visibility as a backup camera.

Put mine where a rear view mirror would be. It is always in if HMMWV is on. This way I can also use as rear view mirror especially when back curtain is on and vision is restricted

The Garmin comes up with a message that says "rear camera detected" and displays the rear view when I touch the screen.
