I have the factory mirror that i took off mine if you want a good deal. then all you need is a camera and you are all set. it wires through the reverse lights which turns it on and off.

Added OEM Backup camera and mirror.

If you have any questions let me know. I'm in the process of doing my 2010 CC SB Lariat now. Came up with a mirror and camera on ebay for $250 and ordered another tailgate handle from tasca. This one I didn't get a chunk of harness with the plug on it for the mirror so I might have to order the roof harness just to get the plug.

As some of you know from my post on other forums, a several months back I completed designing and building a custom harness to allow the nearly plug-n-play install of the newer Ford OEM navigation with Sync in my 2008 Super Duty.

As a continuation of that project I added a custom camera system which originally just added a front camera and a custom steering wheel switch to allow turning the camera display on (regardless of what gear the truck is in) and switching the display between the two cameras.

Well I have now completed what I believe (and my wife hopes) is the final part of this project. This final part just adds a couple more cameras to the system and some pretty cool (at least I think they are cool ) features for controlling the cameras/display. With this new four camera ability it is now possible to have a standard backup camera on the tailgate of the truck, a front camera to aid in nose in parking, a camera inside a trailer and finally a camera on the rear of the trailer. The camera inside the trailer will allow you to see your load while driving to be sure nothing has shifted or if you are hauling livestock (ie. horses) you can check on their well being. The trailer's back camera provides the same features as a normal backup camera on the truck (displays automatically when the truck is shifted into reverse) but it shows the view behind the trailer since the view behind the truck itself is of little value when backing a trailer. Which rear camera is displayed (truck or trailer) is dependant on whether or not a trailer is connected.

So how does it all work you ask...well, anticipating that some would be curious, I created a short video demonstrating the camera system.
