Toggle Switch

The switch kit adds a new dimension to your current setup, allowing you to toggle between views from your truck bed camera and factory backup camera with the flip of a switch. The integrated flip switch can be mounted inside of your truck to give you a clean OEM look and easy access.


Simple Installation


2015-2020 Ford Bezel Side by Side

Simply unscrew and unplug your factory third brake light. Once removed, set your new custom bezel with camera in place. Feed the 6' camera wire through the opening into your truck and re-install your factory third brake light in front of the custom bezel.


2015-2020 ford bezel connection

Connect your 6' camera wire to the 18' wiring harness. This combined 24' wire will extend through your head liner or door sill panel along the edge of the floor, up to the front of your truck, and connect with the included ground and power wiring harness. The power wire will run to your truck's battery.


T-harness connection

The switch kit installs by connecting one end of the included T-harness into the factory plug behind your radio, and the other end into the back of your radio. The integrated power wire for the flip switch will run to 12V accessory power.

For being an after market item it is a great camera. The installation video on how to install was very informative down to the last detail. I installed this camera on my 2019 Ford F250 SD that had the sync 3 8" screen and it went together very well. The ONLY thing I would have liked to see is a "centered line" in the middle of the picture to help guide the king pin onto the 5th wheel hitch when hooking up my trailer. I know that there are other newly acquired F-Series buyers who, after years of hooking up 5th wheels by just looking into your rear view mirror, never realized that with these new Ford Trucks that you lose the line of sight due to a higher rear seat back that covers over 8 inches of the rear window so you can't see your hitch. Otherwise, I would have probably had the Ford original camera in the 3rd brake light option. Too bad Ford doesn't sell the camera's to the public as they are losing out of a bunch of money!!!

I installed on a f150 platinum and it worked great. I since have gotten another truck that had it from the factory. Very worthwhile if you have a fifth wheel or goose neck trailer.

I have not installed it yet because I am still gathering up items that are needed to install it properly on my truck. There was no mention in the description when I ordered it that I would need to have other items on hand before I could have a successful install.

Thank you for your review. This install uses existing hardware.

The camera is great, I can backup to my 4th wheel camper and hookup by myself. The only issue I would say is you have to totally remove the front part of your truck to hook it up.

Quality is descent. Would be nice to be able to manually zoom for better close up. The camera doesn’t work well with Trucks with bakflip (shortbed)cover if you using to hook-up to gooseneck. You can’t see the ball at all. Need about an inch more clearance. But overall love the camera. Without a cover works great.



- 3460001

Easy to install by just watching the video. I wired it to the Ford auxiliary switches as was shown on the video. This will take the guesswork out of hooking to my gooseneck 5th wheel.

The only disappointment is you can’t zoom in on the ball in the box but easy installation !

My bed camera works great. Etrailer really stepped up to the plate for me. I installed it and could not get the camera to work after double checking my connections and the instructional video. We determined that the jumper harness was bad. They shipped out another camera system before I could get back to them and let the know the distributor was about 20 miles from me and they agreed to exchange the jumper harness. They even helped me test it on my truck before I left. Thank you Etrailer

Your install video saved the day. Product works as advertised and I like how it uses the factory monitor and the upfitter switch. Ford sure likes to hide those pass through wires though.

I would say this is an excellent product that does what it says it does and does it well. I would have like to have seen more detailed instructions to include how to adjust the camera. When you are carefully installing this on a $70,000.00 truck, it takes most of the day. I would buy it again.

    The Truck Bed Cargo Camera for 8" Factory Monitor - Switch Kit part # 3460001 does feature a 150 degree angle image and 360 degree adjustable camera.

  • Could Install Harness of Truck Bed Cargo Camera # 3460001 Install Through Passenger Side Grommet
    Most likely you could install the Truck Bed Cargo Camera # 3460001 how you were describing, but since that's not how we installed it or how GCH recommends the install we don't have a way to confirm it would work. You could pretty easily attempt to install it that way and if the harness isn't the right length or it doesn't work for any other reason you could just go with the routing you saw in the install video that I also attached.

What you will need to do is simply wire it to a constant 12 volt power source (most people wire it to their reverse lights) and use the toggle switch to turn the camera on and off so you can view the bed when needed.

  • Can the Custom Third Brake Light Camera for a 2020 Ford F-250 Be Wired To An Existing In-Cab Switch
    The Custom Third Brake Light Camera for 8" Factory Monitor part # 3460001 could pretty easily be wired to an existing switch you have in the cab but I would not be able to offer much advice on this as it's designed to be used with the included toggle switch. I will however say that you would need to maintain the fuse size recommendation for the system. It's a two wire switch so installation should be super simple.

I reached out to their tech and he said since you are getting the switch over to a black screen it simply sounds like you aren't getting 12v power to the camera for it to sent the signal back.
