I am considering a reversing camera to a Prado 120 and have been told that there are two methods to attach the cables from the camera to the monitor. The first is thru the interior under the panels, requiring the removal etc. The other method is underneath/ thru the chassis where possible and entering the cabin thru a grommet.
Which way would be easier? Has anyone gone thru the chassis?

I have mine through the panelling and under the carpet up the drivers side. If you went up the chasis you would still have to go through the rear door and panel anyway so I think it is easier to go the panel all the way. My camera is above the no. plate and there is a second cable/connection under the car for the caravan camera. Cheers,Bob.

I have a radio one. The screen was just plumbed into the accessories circuit in the cabin, and the camera, (which is mounted on the number plate) was plumbed into the reversing light lead under the car, via the interior of the back door.

I have a 120 Prado and have pondered this.
Gus3550 or anyone else, did you use the original screen (I have a Grande) or did you replace that?
