Sorry to wake the dead but has anyone have much advice regarding mounting a dashcam and the Eyesight system in a 2015 Liberty? I am looking at getting a DOD LS475 but am trying to figure out if it can go behind the mirror (already have a eTag there) or do I need to offset it to the passengers side, outside the Eyesight area?

It shouldn't interfere with the Eyesight, since that'd be outside of its field of view. Whether it fits behind the mirror depends a lot on how bulky the mount and camera is. I see many dashcams on the road, where the suction mount is so bulky or long that it'd never fit behind the mirror (so people mount it lower, which would annoy me).
If the model you're getting has a stick-on mount, use that. Because suction mounts are often really bulky.
That dashcam you're looking at is just over 10cm wide, so that may just fit.
