  • Brandmotion Ships 3 Rear Vision Kits for Jeep Wrangler

    Innovatively designed series is the first aftermarket solution

    SOUTHFIELD, MICH. – February 13, 2014 (SDG MEDIAWIRE) – Brandmotion, premier provider of Authentic OEM™ components for the aftermarket, has announced it is shipping three Rear View products for the Jeep Wrangler. The kits, which are currently only available in the aftermarket from Brandmotion, enable installation of a rear view camera on models from 1997 to 2014.

    “Rear vision on the Jeep Wrangler has been a sought-after solution for some time,” said Jeff Varick, president of Brandmotion. “It’s something our dealers and expediters have requested from us, and we are excited to provide not just one, but three solutions to the aftermarket.”

    The Authentic OEM(tm) camera is mounted high for superior viewing, and looks out through the the spare tire wheel.


    Brandmotion’s Rear Vision kits for the Jeep Wrangler all include an OEM-validated Panasonic camera that provides superior clarity and image width. The camera is affixed to a specially designed bracket that allows it to ‘peek’ through the spokes of the mounted spare tire.

    Part No. 9002-8826 (MSRP $699.95), which is intended for vehicles without a screen, includes an Authentic OEM replacement mirror with a built-in, 3.5-inch color monitor. The mirror features auto dimming capability.

    Part No. 9002-8827 (MSRP $649.95) is designed to interface directly with the factory radio / navigation display in the Jeep Wrangler. The kit comes with a special programmer that temporarily plugs into the vehicle’s OBD2 port (On-Board Diagnostics) and codes the display to work with the camera, eliminating the need to have the dealership involved in activation.

    Part No. 9002-8828 (MSRP $299.95) is designed to interface with an aftermarket screen-equipped radio or monitor. It includes a composite video connection that plugs directly into a monitor’s RCA input.

  • Brandmotion Expands Rear View Line for Silverado, Sierra

    Two additional kits provide solutions for non-OnStar vehicles and standalone applications

    SOUTHFIELD, MICH. — December 30, 2013 – Brandmotion introduced two new kits during the November Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show to complete its safety line for the 2014 Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra. The Michigan-based supplier of Authentic OEM™ collision avoidance and convenience products was first to ship an aftermarket rear vision system for the popular trucks.

    “Our dealers were excited when we were first to introduce a quality aftermarket rear view solution with the 9002-1010 kit,” said Brandmotion President Jeff Varick. “It works with OnStar-equipped vehicles and matches the factory version feature for feature. Dealers have also asked us to expand and diversify the kit, and we’ve done so with the 9002-1015 and 9002-1005.”

    Both the 9002-1015 and 9002-1005 feature the same Authentic OEM™ Magna Corp. camera as in the 9002-1010, embedded in a factory-equivalent replacement tailgate handle and bezel assembly. The kits are ideal for select versions of the trucks that do not come with rear vision from the factory, such as Base, 1WT and 2WT trim packages, and some models of the LT package.

    The lower cost 9002-1015 is designed to fit Silverado and Sierra WT work trucks and includes a mirror / monitor assembly intended to replace factory mirrors without OnStar controls or an auto-dimming mirror surface. The mirror features a 3.5-inch TFT color monitor that displays from behind the surface when the truck is in reverse gear, and a factory style harness that plugs directly into the existing mirror connector.

    The 9002-1005 is a standalone OEM camera solution that connects to any aftermarket monitor or mirror / monitor that is equipped with a composite (RCA-type) connector.

    The entire Silverado / Sierra product line is now available and shipping to Brandmotion dealers. Authorized dealers can access and download a sell sheet for each kit, as well as sales tools and information on many more Brandmotion products, by logging into the Brandmotion Dealer Central website at For more information, contact Brandmotion at (734) 619-1250, visit or follow Brandmotion on Facebook at
