Liking the idea but needed a bit more work so here is a somewhat more expanded experimental version.
Got another camera, got it for free because the connector was f'd up. Placed a E bay bit on a somewhat larger monitor so I can see a bit better.
First one is the view through the wind shield. Second one is the camera view complement it nicely.
First set off arrows is about 6" or so in front of the tires and the second set of arrows is about a foot and a half in front of the tires.
Should work nicely to give me a better picture of where the shoes ought to go.

Very nice addition. Cameras are becoming more and more popular for self spotting.

Several people are adding them to the FJ's. They have them on all four corners, front, and rear. They toggle between the different views.

Also got my bigger video monitor in the mail, hooked it up and am liking it.
7" monitor makes it a lot easier to see, just debating if I want to put a camera underneath to keep an Eye on the pumkin when there are some big marbles going underneath

Finished wiring my little project and started messing with the camera underneath, figured it wouldn't hurt to aim it somewhat at the right rear tire. Should give me an idea what goes on at all 4 tires when one of my lines turns out to be questionable :-)
