Our Truckin' readers drive their customized trucks, and we want to deliver them the latest in safety accessories. Check out this rear-sight camera from Rostra Precision Controls Inc. Just drop the transmission into Reverse and it instantly activates the Rear Sight Cam, which gives drivers a 150-degree rear vision on the Rear Sight 3-1/2-inch color monitor.
This modification virtually eliminates rear blind spots. This high-quality day/night camera vision system will let you see clearly what is behind you; before, during, and after you've backed up; thus making you aware of children, pets, bicycles, and other obstacles. The Rear Sight waterproof, anti-fog, CCD color image shrouded mini camera will also help you back up to your trailer. It's excellent depth of field lets you locate the hitch ball directly under the trailer's tongue, every time.
The Rear Sight Cam is located inside the rear license plate cove. The 3-1/2-inch LCD color monitor may be mounted in many lcations. You can replace the OEM rearview mirror and just slide the Rear Sight Cam over the rearview mirror windshield mounting bracket. The high-resolution LCD monitor can be mounted atop the dash, or it can also be located somewhere flush with the dash or onto the A-pillar cover.
