Installed a front and rear dash cam last night. Went with the Thinkware F200 Pro. Also got the OBD cable for constant power to enable the parking surveillance mode and for ease of install. Got a CPL filter for the camera too, but found out you can’t use it in combination with windshield tint or else you’ll get a rainbow effect in your videos. Overall it was a pretty easy install. Hardest part was just concealing the wires. For the rear camera, I totally forgot I pretty much don’t have a rear window to install it on because every time I decide to fold the soft top down I have to remove the rear window! Installing it on the underside of the crossbar was the only place that made sense for me while still keeping the camera centered. The spare and the third brake light take up most of the view, but at least the cargo area is in view 🤣 I haven’t tested out the video quality through the plastic rear window yet, but I should be able to soon. I’ll post pics of that as well.

Hidden behind the rear view mirror. Can hardly see it from the driving position.

I absolutely love all of your choices! Just curious why you got the front and rear cameras…theft deterrent or is there some other reason?

Thank you! Main reason for the camera is just in case of an accident I’ll have video proof of who’s at fault.

Had some work done on my Bronco and just picked it up from the shop after a longer than expected wait. Apparently, the current shipping issues affect the PPF/wrap industry too!

As the title says, got my Bronco wrapped in GSWF Defender Satin PPF and then ceramic coated with Ceramic Pro. The shop I went to also just started doing windshield protection film services, so had them protect mine with STEK DYNOflex Windshield Protection Film. Also had them paint my Badlands grill gloss black, PPF the door sills, and install black Ford oval and bucking bronco emblems. I’ll try and post pics of the emblems tomorrow. Super happy with how it all turned out. If you’re in the Houston area, hit up Clutch City Customs if you’re in the market for PPF, vinyl wrap, tint, ceramic coating, etc.

Looks awesome! I had also thought about painting my grille gloss black like that. Maybe next year I can do the stealth ppf on my CO!

If you don't mind, what was the ballpark for the ppf? I've been wanting to satin wrap mine as well, but I was quoted ~$7k for a full wrap.

The shop I used charges $6k, but I got a homie hookup because my friend is the shop manager 😆 Keep shopping around though. You should be able to find it for about $5-6k.
