Once you’ve got it installed and working flawlessly on your Jeep let me know when you’d like me to drop mine off for you to get the install performed on mine. Thanks Scott.
Of course they haven’t answered my request for information so I’m not holding any hope at this point.

I found the company in China that makes this setup and have a friend (that lives in China) talking with them to purchase a unit. Will keep you posted what I find out.

Will the after market trail cameras work with the 7" display or do you need a separate monitor?? Do they display wheel tracks like the factory display on the 8.4" monitor.

No, because I removed the grille guard and lights. I mounted the off road lights directly to the factory steel front bumper so now the camera has an unobstructed view.

Before, I could see the back side of the grille guard, and the back side of the off road lights which left about a 20% view of the trail ahead.

Can you buy that camera as a standalone option on the Rubicon?? Or do you need to buy the whole safety feature package??

My biggest buyers regret is that I don’t have the front trail camera because it wasn’t available on the 2019 JL. Get it. It shows you the trail ahead instead of the sky.
I'm ordering a 2021 Rubicon, can I buy the trail cam as a stand-alone option? Or do I need to buy the whole safety package group which I don't want to do.

It's a great option. I ordered it on my JLUR and love it. The angle is perfect in my opinion and let's you clearly see what's in front. The build it cleaning system (sprayer) works well too.
Can you order a Jeep with the front camera as a stand-alone option? Or you need to buy the whole safety group package which I don't want to do??

You need the led lighting and the 8.4 radio to get the front trailcam

I do have those options, does that mean the front trail cam automatically comes or do I need to add the front trail cam as a separate option? Thanks

Here is the camera on my JL. It is a $595 dollar option separate from LED and the 8.4.

Or do you actually have that package in order to get the front camera? Is there a big square box above your rear-view mirror?

Just go on Jeeps website and build one....see if you need the other packages for the camera.
I'm 95% certain you don't...

Sorry for the delay. I worked on the Jeep all day today getting it ready for a 5,500 mile road trip. And more work tomorrow.

When you add the integrated off road front camera option, the ordering system will automatically add:

1.) 8.4" screen
2.) Alpine sound system
3.) LED lighting package

When you order the above three options, it DOES NOT automatically add the the front camera. The off road front camera is still a separate option. The guys on the Jeep Wrangler product team are marketing geniuses. They are excellent at transferring money from your account into their account.

Hope that helps.
