All electric plug-in version in 2020! What will that be like?

Anyone know how owners will deal with the backup camera?

If you have a larger tire and you need to place a reinforced bracket over the tire carrier to move the tire out and up you lose the center hole of the tire carrier. The camera hopefully will be able to me removed and placed elsewhere. I suspect now that the wiring is in place, this will be an easy workaround, but Jeep engineers must have weighed the concern for owners to be able to put larger tires on with the location they chose to place a somewhat sloppy backup camera design.

Perhaps they just stuck it there and made it removable to meet fed guidelines, knowing everyone would move it elsewhere if needed.

Anyone seen this thing up close to see how that thing comes apart?

For some reason I can't find a picture of the new Wrangler's rear, at least not close enough for me to see where the rear camera is mounted. Maybe it's the black thing sticking of from the middle of that spare tire?

I don't think that Jeep has replaced rearview came, so it will be in the same spot behind your extra spare tire. For those who carry a larger spare tire, it would be a good option to install the backup camera on trailer hitch or on a bumper.

I recall seeing a photo, maybe on one of the youtube video's the camera is mounted in the center of the spare wheel & tire. Opps, just re-read first post and realized you already knew this.

Just as I expected, same position as with the current generation, no need to change the position as it gives the greatest vantage point. Although I can see why someone might want a secondary camera, still the single camera setup is adequate.

Absolutely agree. If you need a secondary camera you can always check what aftermarket offers, there are a lot of affordable options. You can even install it by yourself.
