Ram Truck Cargo Cameras Explained

2013-2015 Ram Truck

The 2013-2015 Ram truck featured a factory cargo camera built into the LED third brake light. It came as an option on all trucks that were equipped with an 8.4-inch radio display and a backup camera. When engaged into reverse, the backup camera appeared in the rear view mirror and the cargo camera appeared on the 8.4-inch radio display. These 2013-2015 built 8.4-inch radios only had one camera input, hence the reason why Ram decided to put the backup camera image in the rear view mirror. Dumb right?

ADD a cargo camera to your 2013-2015 Ram truck - Coming soon will be the opportunity to install a 100% plug & play cargo camera to your 2013-2015 Ram truck! Here is what you'll need:

  • All radios sold through Infotainment.com feature the latest & greatest firmware updates prior to shipping. If you currently have a factory installed 8.4-inch radio display ask your local dealer to update your radio's firmware to the 2017 version 17.11.XX. If they don't have that capability then send your radio to NavRepair.com for their $99 inspection & firmware update. This firmware upgrade will enable two camera inputs on your 8.4-inch radio. One for a backup camera and one for a cargo camera. Both easily selectable using soft keys on your radio display.
  • Purchase our Ram CHMSL Third Brake Light Cargo Camera Kit (Coming late Summer 2017) This kit includes the following parts:
  1. Cargo Camera OBD Genie Programmer (C-SCC)
  2. Modified C4T radio interface with a dedicated cargo camera RCA input

  4. EZ-DC 12v Power Accessory Kit

2016-2018 Ram Truck

The 2016-2018 Ram truck featured a factory cargo camera built into the LED third brake light. It came as an option on all trucks that were equipped with an 8.4-inch radio display and a backup camera. Both the backup camera and the cargo camera appeared on the 8.4-inch radio display while in reverse. The driver had the option to select between both images using soft keys on the radio display. These 2016-2018 built 8.4-inch radios had two camera inputs allowing the driver to easily install two separate cameras and have the ability to see both on the 8.4-inch display. Makes perfect sense!
