It’s pretty simple, but not for the faint of heart if you can’t take seeing the dash of a $50K Jeep torn apart. I got the idea and parts list from forum member @Mantacon here: https://www.jlwranglerforums.com/forum/threads/installing-the-front-camera-and-roku-follow.14729/

If you look at the parts on my workbench, I laid them out how they connect. The yellow video cable on the upper left is what plugs into the head unit, then the rest attach in order. Again, not terribly difficult, but some disassembly required. Cost was around $100 or so for everything.
Thanks, looks like it would be worth the price! Cut and ripped the jeep up pretty good already for the 55k price tag, definitely not for the faint of heart, lol. ;)

Installed near rear Warn Elite full length bumper! Was kinda a pain to install because of the stupid carriage bolts, they kept wanting to pop out when tightening the nuts that hold the bumper on. Got the one with the rear tire carrier cable, don't plan on doing that yet since I already spent allot upgrading the rear gate etc, but cool option down the road. The license plate bracket was awesome just plug and play with the stock light and the back up senors were pretty easy as long as you don't mind extending one of them to reach the new rear sensor spot. Overall super happy now I just need to pick out some sweet looking shackles! Btw your rear stock bumper is being held on by 4 bolts, 4.....:whew:

Installed front and rear track bars from Rusty’s off-road. Front axle was 1/4inch off center, the back was centered. Crazy how with just a 1.5” spacer lift shifts everything. Also had to re-center the steering wheel.

Built this, couldn’t spend the big bucks on a premade one.

Total was $21 for aluminum and $8 for hardware, rest of the stuff i had already.

I would put a rubber door edge guard around the AL edge to protect yourself from cuts.

There is a trick for that that I saw on here somewhere else. Wrap a rubber band around the key, fold it up and cut the rubber band flush. I never use my key, but it is there if I need it. hasn't opened once.

it look like your center break like broke??
No. I captured this while the flashers were on to let you know what it would look like. Thought about it after I posted, lol. My 3rd brake light and spare tire brake light are good. Hard to press brake and run around to get the camera shot when by yourself and no tripod. Lol.
