Default Re: Back-Up Camera

Hey Bob,

I was thinking and i dunno what the license plate mount looks like but I wonder if theres a way to mount it on\with the third brake light somehow??....Also, wouldnt this provide a better view and wider angle to see pedestrians as well?.. Just somethings to ponder.

Also youre asking too much from GLH lol. Thats what he does. I dont think Jensen is not a quality brand... IMO they arent top of the line but definitely a good mid grade and i have never heard any kind of "horror stories" about the quality, unreliability, or any issues with a jensen product for that matter.

I looked at the third brake light too and thought I would see more of the bed and less directly behind the tailgate where I need to see..I'm thinking bracket drop down from the ball mount is on the bumper but if I ever need to mount my ball it would be in the way...

Didn't follow you on asking to much from GLH?

Thanks for you're input Tom

did you miss the whole paragraph? should i bold out the parts where he asked you to contribute??

I have no experience with back up cameras but I know without a doubt Jensen is a flea market type brand. I would rate the brand just a tad higher than Dual, Pyle, and Pyramid. There is a reason the camera is only $20 or whatever you said it was. Also, I don't always like or take the advice given to me, either. An Uncle once told me to never mess with girls, leave them alone.

Hey mr bob chill man. Dont get caught up in some bs. No need to take it personally. What you gonna do? take a plane and meet with glh and have a piss match. People talk trash to me? Yes. Do i have the best brands? No i dont. Are people in here gonna like my kicker door speakers? No they wont they will tell me thhhey are junk. Big deal. Get over it buddy and move on.

----------

Bob U got to understand GLH and i get where glh is coming from. Glh seems like he likes doing things the right way, the professionaal way with decent parts not crappy junk like dual or pyle or some walmart audio junk. Also to Bob of india that camera u bought is from a junky brand. Wait wait dont take it all personal im a nobody with my opinion. Just my opinion i might in fact be wrong about it maaybe you got a top of the line camera.

Sounds like I better throw it in the trash as I might get laughed out of town,LOL

But to answer your question I have everything here but waiting on Spring because my friend with the lift doesn't have heat and I can't get him to let me use his lift until it warms up...I mentioned to him it shouldn't take more than a half hour to run the wires but he wouldn't budge...So now I have 2 choices crawl around like a worm on my heated garage floor or wait for it to warm up...
