I’m a little disappointed that Ford didn’t include the 360 camera system as part of the Tremor off-road package. I traded in my 2019 GMC AT4 which came with several cameras specifically to help with visibility of obstacles while driving off road. I didn’t want the backup assist but didn’t realize that it was part of the 360 camera feature.
My question is, does anybody know if the camera system can be added after purchase by a dealer or if there is an aftermarket option for a front and side cameras that will work with the Sync 3 system?

I've seen some aftermarket options that seem almost more appealing because they don't come with the "nanny Ford" features so you can view them while driving.

have you installed the latest version of the sync software? My tailgate camera acted up all the time, until I downloaded the last update and the cam has been perfect ever since

Honestly GMCs camera setup is much nicer than Ford’s. Was in a buddy’s AT4 this weekend and was surprised at the sophistication of that particular piece of tech. That’s about as far as my envy went though. Still much prefer the SD

As a former AT4 owner I can honestly say the Tremor is a far superior truck in all the important areas. Towing and off road capabilities are far better in the SD.
The head up display and cameras were cool but I’ll never go back to a 1/2 ton gasser.

I thought all Tremor packages came with the camera's...I was shocked to read this... I know there is a camera system on the market that requires you to change out the rear view mirror to use, has four views 2 side and front and back. I do not remember the nameof the system or I would link it for you. It will also plug and play with a Pioneer radio if I remember right.

I think it’s only certain trim levels may be lariat and up

also I am not sure if they did it with this version of truck, but somtimes the wire looms are installed and hidden to include the stock camera's...you may be able to have a body shop order replacements and forscan it in...

You are correct sir. You need the Ultimate Trailer Tow Camera System option. Lariats dont have this by default, u need to add it. With that said this option can also be added on XLT.
