    Ek het al gehoor mense se dat jy op die amarok die ignition 3 keer moet aan en af sit.

    Re: Amarok reverse cam

    Just get a rcd330 with a rear cam... You will have the option of the pdc display or camera as far as I know. That's for the rear in anyway, not sure how the front works as I don't have PDC.

    MediaRelease: Re: Ford Ranger Raptor - Birth of a New Breed

    You get military vehicles that runs on coils, so itís not weight.
