Installed 12 volt plugs.

I put a 12 volt plug on the back of the center console so you can put a DVD player or kids game player. Then i put a plug in the bed inside of bed pocket.

simple mod but i'm almost sure this is the first time I've seen this done in the bed!

I don't think I'd have a use for it back there though.. just me

It's been done. One great use is to get an inexpensive 12v light from K-Mart that has a long cord and a magnetic base. Mount a 12v in your bed (like this one) & put one under your hood and now you've got light under your hood when you need it (thanks for leaving that one out Toyota ) and light if you're working around the back of your truck... changing a tire or whatever. Pretty inexpensive mod and if you don't want to run power all the way through the cab for the back 12v you can just tap your trailer wiring and you will have switched 12v power so you also don't need to worry about leaving something on when the key is off and draining power. Of course this also means you need the key on to use it but this is a better idea IMO.

Also, to the OP: Those wires you ran your power with.. is that power & ground for your audio system amp(s) or is it the RCA for the amp(s)? If it's power & ground then you're good where you routed them. If it's the RCAs then you'll want to run the power on the other side as to not introduce noise into your audio system.
