Well, ZAutomotive made available today, their front camera offering...
JL Wrangler JL Front Camera

Go here to read more in regard to this offering:
https://zautomotive.com/product/jeep-wrangler-jl-front-camera/

Easy to install, grille-mounted front camera kit for the 2018-2019 Wrangler JL. Includes everything needed to install the kit, no wire splicing, no screws.

Requires a Tazer JL or Tazer JL Mini to activate the “cargo camera” input on your screen. Works on the 8.4 Uconnect only.

If the Tazer JL is present, this camera input can be activated at any time, in any drive mode and at any speed, as long as you want. Makes a perfect trail camera as well as for parking.

Cargo camera input is not a Hi-Definition input like the backup camera; so the video quality will not be as good! This is a high quality standard definition (480i) camera. There is no way to add a high-definition cargo camera input to the JL radio.

Seems like you lose almost 1/3 of the picture with the bumper/grill

True but the important part is visible to prevent hitting things and I like that it is more subtle than the gladiator version and doesn’t stick out as far

Should be useful on trails and even in parking lots

Will have to add this to my list of potential forward facing cameras. I was disappointed to hear that the 8.4 is not capable of hi def input for the cargo cam though, I really like the backup cam resolution.

Gladiator will have a front camera with washer. I imagine the JL will add this option in a few years.
I saw that ....I'm sure they will adapt to JL's sooner then later

or hope anyway

@JC7

Most forum member's know the Tazer JL was the first JL programmer made available to JL owner's. After awhile the Flashcal for JL,was made available by Superchips.

Anyway ......with that said, once the JL Front Camera is installed, "Cargo Camera" has to be enabled by a programmer.

ZAutomotive (Joe) to my knowledge, was the first to code.... the one who originally coded... for enable, Cargo Camera a few months ago.... after a bit enable Cargo Camera was iadded to the Flashcal feature list.

So, with that said, yes, the Flashcal should (?) be able to enable the ZAutomotive, JL Front Camera.

Just trolling you buddy. I only have a Tazer. I did buy this too. Thanks for sharing. I’ll let you how it works as long as it doesn’t burn my rig down.

@JC7

The JL Wrangler JL Front Camera, will be a terrific addition to a JL... especially, to the JL that off roads.

Regardless which programmer actually enables the Cargo Camera.... so the camera kit can be used... means little..

Since the Tazer JL is the programmer that most JL owner's have gone with, it is a given that Cargo Camera, will more often then not, be enabled with a Tazer JL.

Hopefully, when someone with a Flashcal, successfully enables cargo camera... has this camera offering installed/working.. that they will post and let other Flashcal guys/gals know it is a can do, lets say..
