Default Stereo upgrades ... The Never Ending story

I had been looking for a new headunit for my Tacoma and came across this double-din unit from Pioneer, AVH-P4000. It is last year's model and I found it on Amazon for $305 with iPod cable and free shipping.

I really like it so I decided I needed to put one in the 80. It has full iPod controls with touch screen. And as you can see the color of the screen can be change to fit the vehicle.

But by far the best part is the camera inputs.

First thing I added a color backup camera. I modified the Lic plate light housing to accomodate the camera.

That wasn't enough, and knowing how important rear tire placement is for the 80, I also put a camera on the trans cross member to help with spotting

I hope I get the opportunity to watch you watching the camera monitor! Who knows, what good are rock lights if the driver can't see what they are lighting up - this could be the "next big thing" in wheeling, Mike.

Pretty sweet. I guess you can watch the screen while in drive? Most units only allow it in reverse or park.

If you don't mind me asking what is the price for the camera?

Even if it's only in park, that's the schnizit. Most of the time the linkage isn't bound up too bad to put it in park on an obstacle that you need to get un-hung on..

The cameras were about $35 each with shipping.

"LEGALLY" DVDs and other video cannot be seen by the driver while in motion. There is a wire connection that "must" ( ) be made to the parking brake to lockout the screen unless the p-brake is activated. There is an easy solution to that

The reverse camera has no limitation set by the HU and can be activiated at any time.
