    Just installed this Master Tailgaters tailgate handle backup camera and really happy with the look and video resolution.

    https://www.amazon.com/Master-Tailg...8-3&keywords=tailgate+backup+camera+dodge+ram

    Took just a few hours, handle fits very nicely and it doesn't look or feel cheap. Has a long enough video cord that reaches up to the engine compartment and then into my aftermarket head unit in my quad cab. I spliced into the power wire for the reverse lights; it was a white wire with a green stripe (I had two of these wire color combos: white with a light green stripe and white with a dark green stripe). I can't remember which one I used but I can always pull off the taillight and let you know if you're going to install this. Resolution isn't HD quality but good enough to see everything behind you clearly.

    What year is your 10 and what head unit do you use?
