Dodge Nitro: Installing Front Bumper Camera


I decide to install this more expensive BOYO VTL405HDL Multi-View License Plate Camera (Chrome) on the front of my Nitro because of its added features.

You can also order this camera in Black with part # VTL425HDL.

Installing this camera is fairly simple after you create mounting for a front license plate, if you don’t mount it upside down as I did originally because it looked better! (I do not have front license plate). I even drilled a hole for the camera wires at the wrong location, even so after cutting off the larger supplied gourmet, using the smaller one and drilling a wire hole, using a 11/32 drill bit it still looks O.K. Didn’t realize my mistake until viewing picture on factory MyGIG screen.

Installing correctly just use your camera as a template with the wires exiting behind on the left driver’s side drilling a 11/32 hole.
I connected the feed wire to the inside harness installing heat shrink tube first to be heated after all checks out (I used a larger 1/4 size than supplied). Running the inside harness up and to the passenger side engine compartment to be wired tied later.

I used a pre-existing gourmet on the firewall to run cable inside vehicle behind glove box door, after dropping door, releasing the hinges. I used a feed wire to bring cable into the inside of the vehicle to hook to the installed Lockpick.
