Default Clever Rear Mounted Back-Up Camera Pics

I would like to see pictures of clever ways you have mounted your back-up camera's on your rear bumpers...Thanks

Buy an emblem with the backup camera in it. Then install it in the tailgate.

Just mounted the camera to the plate frame. Makes backing to hook up to a trailer a snap!

Haha I've never done it, but I see plenty of new fords with it and figured that be a very discrete way to do it

You could always drill a hole in your bumper somewhere and mount it behind the hole.

Like below your license plate.


You could also possibly mount it in one of your taillights, of course you would have a somewhat distorted view.

dont put it in the hitch hole. It will get broken. Mount it beside the license plate or on the plate bracket

I'm kinda leaning that way...Wonder if I could get by with one license light if I used a led bulb on one side and put the camera in the other light hole?

Really trying to avoid drilling if possible but thanks for you input..If I did drill it would be two small holes in the center on the bottom edge of the back bumper and hang it down...Thanks Bud!
