Rear backup camera??

I got a 2011 2500 diesel "longhorn"......LOVE the truck, but last year i had this crazy idea of installing a rear camera on the salter and possibly plugging it in to the existing tailgate plug. Im a true plow boy (12yrs in), never thought i would ever use a rear camera but have found it surprising useful........any thoughts???

I've had this setup since new on my 2010

Order the wiring harness from the tailgate. Should be $100 or so. Any qualified installer can then mate up an aftermarket camera to the end of the harness. Then when you disconnect your tailgate all you do is plug in the same harness with the other camera. Works like a charm. I'm in Toronto so if you want to see my setup swing by. Cheers
