Well, after much debate, research, etc., I opted for the Honda installed back up sensors and had them put in yesterday ($811 total). It was worth the piece of mind, having young children, as well as having the work warranty by Honda.

I looked at other systems as well as back-up cameras. My friend also gave me a page from a Consumer Reports October, 2004 ratings on backup systems.

One thing I immediately noticed is that the vehicle system 'beeps' as soon as you put it in reverse.....

I only need one more accessory (bed extender) to complete my wishlist!

I know, its a lot....I was looking at $550 for the back-up camera installed (non-Honda) with a one year warranty....figured it wasn't worth risking it. I live on dirt roads and was afraid the bumpy ride day in/day out would do the camera in eventually.

The first time that I put my Ridge in reverse after the sensors were installed I almost jumped out of my seat. That thing is LOOUUD inside the truck.

You get used to it though.

Thanks for the info meanmac! I am intending to have the back up sensors and the camera installed after the New Year.
