    Default Tailgate Handle w/ backup camera

    I am installing an aftermarket backup camera for my 2010 Tundra CM. I am also buying the tailgate handle with the camera hole... Does anyone know if the dimensions of the camera hole on the tailgate handle will fit the camera? Or does anyone know the dimensions of the factory back up camera? The camera I bought is a Sony XA-R800C. The dimensions of the camera are: Dimensions

    Rear-View Camera (alone):
    • Width = 0.9375"
    • Height = 0.9375"
    • Depth = 1.25" (with attached cable)
    Rear-View Camera (with shroud):
    • Width = 1.5"
    • Height = 1.125"
    • Depth = 1.3125" (with attached cable)
    Hide-Away Box:
    • Width = 2.75"
    • Height = 1.4375"
    • Depth = 4.0625" (with cables)

    Should be delivered today, according to the USPS mediocre package tracking website. Too bad I'm at work. If I'm lucky, the wife won't wrap it up and stick it under the tree before I get home, as its supposed to be a christmas present! Normally I have this stuff delivered to my work address, but apparently PayPal wouldn't let me verify my company's address, even though we've been here for 13 years. Sheesh.

    Congrats on your Christmas gift! Thanks for your help again! Based on my camera's measurements do you think my camera will fit the tailgate?

    Not sure what the hide away box is, but I doubt that 4" will fit. I think there wasn't more than an inch of space between the back of the camera and the tailgate access panel. At that point, I don't think the tailgate is more than 4" deep! Especially with the latch handle mechanism taking up some space.
