The previous thread on this forum is old and closed however, I wanted to point out one major problem with the install write-up if your truck has side curtain airbags. This problem also exists with many YouTube videos on the subject.

When running the power wire down the A-pillar, you have to remove the trim piece and run the wire on the side near the windshield. If you tuck the wire on the other side behind the rubber door trim on the A-pillar, then the wire will be sitting in front of the side curtain airbag.

The rear camera wire should also not be tucked behind the rubber door trim on the A-pillar, B-pillar and C-piller because it will be in sitting in front of the side curtain air bags also.

The proper way to install the rear camera wire is to fish it through the headliner to the back. That way, you completely avoid the side curtain airbags.

Also, the fuse panel cover does fit if you do the wiring connections with an add-a-fuse (at least on a 2020).

Would you by chance have any pictures?
Here are PICs of the Blackvue DR900-2CH Plus (4K UHD front, 1080P rear) that I installed. The front camera tucks behind the rearview mirror where you can't see it from the driver's seat. From the front, you can see the camera if you are looking for it. The rear camera cannot be seen from the back of the truck since the stock tint hides it.
