I have a dash board cam there is good wreck that I got in to while we were plowing somewhere in this thread. ( I have the link somewhere on my phone I will upload it after I post this) I had a back up cam but the screen was too small. I don't know one guy that has a camera even though that makes the most sense to have one. I would like to put one on the skids but the screen would have to be bigger than what you got there. I have ran a couple that have factory cam I just don't trust what you are seeing in that little bitty screen, I still turn around. There is one at Sam's that runs on a app that I could use with a IPAD. Those stationary objects are avoidable if you just stay in the lines and pay attention, the real trickery is when you get more than one piece of equipment on a lot and sprinkle in a few trucks just to make it interesting that is when shit gets hairy. Guy a few years ago backed in to his bosses truck with the skid (both in motion) and blew his rear window out

Because you can't shit out of a screen the size of a wallet

And the image is sharp as a tack(strip. Hate “those” things) my photo below unfortunately didn’t focus on the screen.

I should have edited that to say no offense Kevin. The ones in the skids are smaller than that. How far out does yours project? How much was it? What brand is it? would you trust just looking at it while doing 25mph in reverse

I donít know if it was exactly this brand, but it looks just like one linked below and description-wise itís the same. You know all these things are made in China most likely and sold under 100 different names. It has brightness controls, contrast, works perfectly at night in the dark, itís a great all-around unit that Iíve been using for about five years. The reason I got this one was my audio video dealer installed the same ones on all the fire trucks in town. So thought they did the research for me.

Hereís a link to one thatís probably the same thing that I have.

And in regards to backing up 25 mph using it, I am not a lawyer, nor do I play one on TV, so I wouldnít advise you on how fast you can go in reverse. 25 mph, now I can see why things get broken.

MuskyMike, you must get this kinda snow once in a while. I was 90 miles south of you for 5 years at UWEC. Got this a few times too.

The snow fall in the next 5 to 20 years is going to be record breaking. The Solar Cycles are getting lower and lower, scary stuff.
