How to Install a Dash Cam in My Pickup Truck

How to Install a Dash Cam in a Pickup Truck

We recently received a number of inquiries from customers asking if a 2-channel dash cam will work for their pickup trucks, as well as trucks with canopies. The answer is that it’s certainly possible, but the installation process may be difficult depending on how your canopy was designed.

Find the perfect dash cam for you, and start driving safely with your silent witness onboard. Take a look below, and don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

Cellink NEO Battery Pack

What This Does

The Cellink NEO offers Bluetooth technology with smartphone integration, whose apps are both Android and Apple-compatible. The apps will show useful information such as overall remaining battery life.


For Trucks without a Rear Window

The best location for a rear camera on a truck canopy is generally externally-mounted. This is especially true if the canopy does not have a rear window. Our solution to this issue is the BlackVue DR750S-2CH IR Truck with the Cellink NEO Battery Pack, whose rear camera is completely waterproof.

The best location for installing a rear camera on a truck canopy (similar to a box-style truck) is with a BlackVue DR750S-2CH IR Truck as the rear camera is waterproof and durable.


For Trucks with a Rear Window

For canopies that have a rear window, you can install any regular 2-channel dash cam such as the BlackVue DR750S-2CH with the Cellink NEO Battery Pack as the wiring is weather-proof. For the cleanest installation here, you can wrap the cable that connects the front and rear cameras along the headlining and panels that run down the vehicle, and then through any factory tailgate tubing that may be present.

See our CLA Installation Guide to see how to properly hide your cables.

See below how our team installed the BlackVue DR750S-2CH and Cellink NEO on the 2019 Ford F-150.
