Backup Camera System for a Ford F-150 with License Plate and Tailgate Handle Cameras


Hi, Ive purchased from you in the past. Im interested in a backup camera for my F150. I want something wired, but want to know if the cameras are standard enough that I could substitute one in the tailgate bezel instead of the license plate ones. For display, Im thinking a screen instead of trying to wire into existing stuff, rear view mirror, for example.

I believe I have exactly what you need to add the desired backup camera(s) to your Ford F-150. For starters, you will need a monitor and for that I recommend the Rear View Safety Backup Monitor part # RVS-6139N. The monitor does come with a universal mount but we also have the Rear View Safety Swivel Mount part # RVS-1420 and the Rear View Safety Flush Mount part # RVS-421 available if you want a cleaner look.

Then for the camera, we have options that will mount in the tailgate handle and options that will mount on the license plate. For the license plate mount, I recommend the Rear View Safety License Plate Backup Camera part # RVS-778. For the tailgate handle mount, I recommend the Rear View Safety Tailgate Handle Backup Camera part # RVS-F150 if you have a 2008-2015 Ford F-150 or the Rear View Safety Backup Camera for Pickup Trucks part # RVS-TAILGATE if you do no have a 2008-2015 Ford F-150.

I think what you are asking is if the same camera can be used in both locations and the answer to that would be no but, you can switch back and forth between them using the above monitor as it has multiple camera inputs.
