    Ok some more research today...

    the video processor seems to be for the ADAS system or forward collision system. I deduced this by looking at the descriptions. The trail cam is called off-road camera. The adas stuff is called forward camera. So we may not need the processor after all. I wasn’t able to dismantle my washer bottle today. I did poke around and don’t see any harnesses for the camera. Anyone know where they may be? My Jeep has the LED package.

    I believe all of the parts have been found except maybe the wiring harness. I am hoping it's already there with the 8.4 radio and LED lights.

    It's also odd how the icons on your display show both being rear facing.

    That’s how the Tazer front cam option works. It simulates a cargo camera for a Ram, and uses that to give you the input for the front camera.

    How hard was it to wire up. in other words how hard to RIP apart the dash to access the back of the display screen. Thanks.

    good Afternoon
    i have been following this thread and now that i have parts on order, i decided to do my research after the fact.. what i found is both good and bad. the good is this can be done. however, you will need to determine if your Gladiator has the central video processing module. if you do, then the install is pretty easy. if not, then you will need to obtain that unit which is part #68329740AE and costs 306.00 online. this part is behind the subwoofer. the other part you will need is the video cable from the camera to the processor. there is one harness that is only 42.00 online and that part number is 68406737AB.. however, the main section is part of the main wiring harness in the engine compartment. to find the end that will connect to the camera wiring harness, look just aft of the left headlight and you will see two wires that are video cable that are bolted to the body. there is no connector at that end. the second part of the wiring to the CVPM i am still working on. i found on my Overland that i do not have the CVPM., but most of the wiring is there. i am sorry for both the good and the bad news. if you have any questions please feel free to ask. have a great day

    Great info. Do tou need all this is you have a Rubicon with adaptive cruise control and crash avoidance? I thought the video processor was done by the controller.

    as i did my researsh, i found that you have to have the LED lighting system, but i am not sure if the Adaptive cruise control is involved with the CVPM it does make sense. let me do some more research on this.

    Thanks for doing the research. I have had camera, grill and bracket on order for about a week now but have not heard anything from from suppliers. Just a pending charge. I have the 8.4 inch display and the LED light package, but no Adaptive Cruise Control on my Rubicon. I'm very interested in adding the OEM trail cam to the Gladiator. Really curious if the Rubicon has the video processor already installed. Kind of a weird place behind the rear seats near the subwoofer. I have not popped the plastic cover off to look ... yet.
    thanks again for your research on this topic.

    by pulling the back panel off was how i found out the CVPM was not in the jeep. as to the adaptive cruise control, the camera and radar unit is in the box in front of the rearview mirror. i am working on the issue of the wiring from the Can bus that is located behind the left rear seat to the CVPM. this may take awhile. However, to see if you have the CVPM, try looking behind the panel that is behind the left rear seat. pop the panel off using a flat trim tool and see if there is more then three connectors. i have not looked in to which place the CVPM connector fits. i hope to do that tomorrow. i have attached 2 pictures to help you with your looking. i hope this helps.

    the connector that is part of the can bus will have two wires. one dark blue and the other is white with a orange stripe.
