I want to hook up a rear camera in the key hole of the rear lift gate of my 2002 GMC Yukon.
Where can I get ignition switched power for it?
Thanks.

I couldn't find any switched power in the lift gate. I ended up taping into the the switched power for the drop down and ran a remote wire from the front to the lift gate. I then used a relay and one of the main power wires from the rear wiper. Seems to work pretty good.

to get a true power other than using what you are just go to the steering column or by a small device that its called a add a fuse it allows you to add a fusable link to your current fuse box with out messing anythign up. than run one power wire back to the camera and ground the other wire. thats it. or go to the pink or orange wire in the steering column harness. thick wires tap a fuse off of that wire than connect that is the right way to do it. the add a fuse thing looks like a fuse with a wire and a butt connetor it is a safe way to add low voltage with a fuse and you dont have to strip or connect to any factory wires. this piece is available at autozone etc.

I have heard of people in this forum having problems tapping into the wiper. Try running the wiper and camera together to make sure you are ok.  I would suggest running a wire to the front. If you want to install a seperate switch to turn the power on while in drive, you are going to have to run a wire to the dash anyways.
