The HCE-TCAM1-WRA is an all-in-one rear view camera and light system for 2007-up Jeep Wranglers. It has a 7-inch diameter footprint and fits directly onto the spare tire mount, along with the tire itself for an integrated look. The 6.25 inch W x 2 inch H third brake light provides added safety, while an additional reverse LED light illuminates the cameras lens for increased image visibility when the Wrangler is backing up. The optimized camera angle provides visibility for near and far objects behind your Jeep Wrangler, straight down and rear view (+5 degrees up from horizontal which can be displayed on an OEM or aftermarket in-dash screen (sold separately). The camera is waterproof (at IP66 ratings) and dust proof, and the cameras angle is optimized for viewing both near and far objects. The camera housing has a matte black finish with gun metal gray powder coat accents. The HCE-TCAM1-WRA uses lug nut mounts for easy wheel removal and compatible with most aftermarket and OEM wheels using the spare tire mount. Three mounting posts of varying lengths are included, so you can choose the correct one to fit the depth of your spare wheel/tire.
I spent a pretty large amount to purchase this unit, but understood you get what you pay for and the Alpine name is quality.
This was not a easy install, I had to pay for an extra harness, as well as the dealership to "flash" the system so it would work.
Now my head unit does display behind me when in reverse, but there are no lines on the screen and no audio....I figured with the cost and alpine brand name, it would have that.
The quality of the product is good, the name Alpine is great, the functions are bad, so for all the money and time I spent on it, its not worth it!
Took about 30 minutes to install and is a great quality camera. Not your typical plastic housing. This thing is solid and the picture at day and night is really good. Great investment.
