Rostra Announces Tailgate-Handle Integrated Backup Cameras

3-20-2017 -- Rostra’s newly-updated line of tailgate handle integrated color cameras provides a way of adding a backup camera system to many of the most popular light-duty trucks on the road today. Every RearSight® tailgate handle camera is custom molded to be a direct replacement to the factory handle and comes equipped with an advanced CMOS III camera that includes selectable parking grid lines that have been accurately measured to match the grid lines available from the OE component.

RearSight® tailgate cameras include a 32.8-foot extension harness, 4-pin weatherproof connector, convoluted tubing, and RCA video output to supply video to any RCA-equipped video monitor.
Distributor Note: The tailgate-handle cameras listed below will soon be available in our mirror/monitor kits. Chrome and CCD-equipped versions of these cameras are also still available using their previous part numbers. Visit to view the complete line.
