    Has anyone done this? The switch blanks are a different size on the driver side than the center. I've found a couple of dual USB's I can wire in, but they're only sized for the center switch blanks, and I can't seem to find any info on the actual size of the driver side blanks.

    I did something similar, but I replaced the round 12v cigarette plugs with USB chargers. I also added one to the back of the center console for rear passengers. The driver side is powered from my Blue Sea fuse block and I reused the original wiring for the passenger side and rear seat, so they turn off with the ignition. And now we got clearance, clarence for large drinks in the cup holders. The wires still get in the way some times, bit not as bad when the USB adapter was plugged in.

    Hey thanks a bunch for all the replies! Things ramped up at work unexpectedly, so I put this off for a bit. Sitting down to order parts tonight though and this is a huge help!

    @ellocodetroit that back seat port was on my list last summer, but I didn't get to it. My kids have so much crap they like to plug in I'm debating on two actually. Appreciate the pics!
