Thanks, @DwnSth , for including your image. It allowed me to orient the camera correctly while I wait for the proper adapter from Teraflex. It was not included in their kit recently delivered from Northridge.

When I called Teraflex, they insisted I double check for the adapter in their product box before shipping one out. Being impatient and having a rare, free Saturday, I just jumped into the installation...and I don't have the adapter.

The tailgate reinforcement & carrier are now temporarily installed. I used some double sided tape for the camera while I wait for the proper adapter. Also, I used some zip ties for the rear pedestrian alert speaker. Hopefully they have a more elegant solution in development.

Same here. Zip tied but, at least it's secure and doesn't move

I ran into the same problem and emailed Teraflex support. The support guy emails me back and says to just pop it in. I'm glad I found this thread as I got an RMA to return it and I was fixing to walk out the door to drop it off at FedEx. I will call to see if I can a better support person and get the adapter sent to me.

I appreciate this thread. We installed our tire carrier last weekend and found that the backup camera didn't fit in the regular configuration. For clarity, we do have the front trailcam and I know we get a different rear camera as a result. Those without the front trailcam shouldn't need this.

A google search brought me here, so I called the number listed above and they sent out the adapter right away. Had it just a couple days later.

We ran for a few days with the rear camera just sitting perched in the hole and it worked fine until the adapter arrived. As you can see from my pics, it's a simple little install. Just click it onto the camera and screw it in.

Thanks for the speedy service, Teraflex.
