thanks a ton, that pic helps a lot. I'm gonna see if I can find out how wide the angle is on the Mopar cam.

Here's the view from a 21 OEM forward facing camera. Hope it helps you.

Sweet thanks look like it won't block too much with a small hoop/stinger.

I think anything other than the small Mopar hoop on the steel bumper is going to block some of the view. Here's an older thread on the Gladiator forum that shows a couple views from the inside. https://www.jeepgladiatorforum.com/forum/threads/grille-guard-front-camera-clearance.20045/

I installed the Warn mid height hoop and two KC Gravity 6" lights on a Maximus bracket and my front camera is all but useless now! It looks cool though. I'll try and get a picture tonight.

How did it come out? I'm in the same boat and would like to see.
I ended up getting a full stinger front bumper with the large hoop and it works fine with the camera as you look through the hoop vs it being in the middle of the screen. It blocks only a small area and its not an issue on the rocks. I mainly use the front cam when climbing stuff thats steep enough to not be able to see tire placement and it works just fine with the stinger bumper

Do you have a winch also? Trying to decide whether I should order my JLR with the Steeler Bumper and aftermarket winch mounting plate or get an after market bumper with a winch mount.

Yes I have a WARN ZEON 10s and got the LOD bumper that fits the winch inside vs ontop so I get to maintain as much camera view as possible.
