    Some flags and center console divider... lots of things on the wanted list.
    All you need to do is splice into the wires already there for the front cigarette lighters. Extend it to where you want them and install. I purchased this one for the tundra.

    Keep in mind, this one was a USB-C/USB port. If you don't have a newer Android phone, just get a double USB one. Make sure it is higher than 2amps so you get quick charging.

    Personally I would get just a plain 12v outlet there and put in a charger plug. You can get dual usb output ones, singles usb, inverters, anything that takes a 12v outlet can be plugged in there. Much more flexible than being locked into 2 usb ports.

    This is what I'm doing this weekend. It's good for charging my GMRS handhelds, friends' phones, whatever I need. Anker makes a low-profile dual USB insert (but I think no quick charge) that barely protrudes if you wanted something stealthy.
