Press Release (UNEDITED): Holly Hill, FL – iBEAM Vehicle Safety Systems® by Metra Electronics® has just released a new replacement camera designed for 2020-up* Jeep® Gladiator JT models. When replacing the radio on these vehicles, the factory LVDS backup camera presents a challenge for aftermarket screens and can be expensive to retain using an interface. iBEAM’s JP-JTKT camera replaces the factory camera to provide an affordable solution that allows the driver to see their backup video on a compatible aftermarket screen when in reverse. This new solution adds to Metra’s growing product line of aftermarket Jeep® accessories.
The JP-JTKT has an RCA output for aftermarket radios or monitors with selectable parking lines and a 160-degree viewing angle. Two different types of camera mounting brackets are available to cover models equipped with either a standard backup camera or models equipped with surround or 360 systems. (Surround or 360 systems are not retained with this kit.) To help with installation, the camera comes with detailed instructions and Metra also has an installation video at https://youtu.be/NLXRKsRFArM. The JP-JTKT is available now and will be included in Metra’s Jeep® accessories and iBEAM training sessions at KnowledgeFest in Orlando.
