    I ran mine under the trim panel below the hatch (much easier to route the wiring as it is between the weather stripping and the trim panel)

    It's been fine, but I don't really have anything to compare it to, as I've never had a back up camera before. It isn't quite as nice as the one that came in my husband's 2012 Tundra. There isn't a grid like a stock camera has but I couldn't find any aftermarket cameras with that option. If you want the exact model number I can check my Crutchfield invoice. I don't think it was very expensive. Maybe a little over $100.

    That is why I am asking for a few reviews as I am wanting something close to oem in terms of quality(I am a crutchfield customer also) as mine is needing replacing and I haven't had it long(though I didn't get it at crutchfield as I wanted to save some money but I guess you get what you pay for)

    I bought a scratch and dent one. I figured it's exposed to the elements anyway, so it didn't need to start out looking perfect. It was $30 cheaper and looked brand new. It's definitely something to consider if that option is still available.

    Getting a scratch and dent one is cheaper then a new one(heck I bought a used tv for a great price like that)

    Do you have a DVD player in your escalade? I'm starting to think I might want to add one for my kids. I'm assuming the best way to do that is in the headrests? I should probably invest in an alarm system, too, if I add more stuff.

    Yes but mine is factory it is a great thing to have for kids when on long trips(I use it for my younger cousins (they bring along a game console sometimes as the unit has a/v inputs) and rarely hear a peep from them
    I have seen a few blu ray disc players that are portable which is backwards compatible with DVDs not sure if they have a head rest type yet

    A aftermarket alarm is a great investment if you add any aftermarket equipment I suggest getting one that has a two way remote with paging feature so it lets you know if someone tries to tamper with the truck while you are away
