Just an update to this for future searchers.
I remove the old camera off the rear and attempted to run the new cable down and under the vehicle. there is a gap about 4-5" between the rear interior wall and the fiberglass outside so there is plenty of room in there. However, at least on mine, there was a piece of OSB that was completely blocking anything from making the drop to the undercarriage.
What I did was to remove the driver's side marker light (the top one) and there was a hole drilled in the OSB for the light's wiring to make the decent to the wire loon under the carriage. I was able to force the silicone out of the hole and use a wire fish through the removed light opening up to the camera opening and then pull the cable through. Ran the cable through the OSB in the same hole with the light's wiring and then the LONG run up to the front.
I ended up running the cable into the cabin under the passenger floorboard along with the heater vacuum and wires for the heater coolant valve.
Not a hard job at all but took some time.
To fill the gap for the monitor, I made a piece of MDF that fits in the bexel opening and will wrap it with vinyl tomorrow. There should be a little room underneath to add some future switches maybe.
I post a picture when I get done with it.
